The Hive is an evolution of the free social centre, intelligently reusing empty buildings and wasted resources to create an independent environmental and cultural social space.
We host cultural and political events, facilitate workshops, hold seminars and meetings, film screenings, art exhibitions and run campaigns on major social issues. The Hive is a venue, a social project and a solutions building. We are not-for-profit and voluntary.
Follow the links above and below for more information on our full schedule or our social activities.
