Our Venue

Free Word is a vibrant venue for art, politics and free expression.

The main hall is open to Free Word Centre’s Residents and Associates, Monday to Friday, 9:00am to 9:00pm. It provides a space to discuss ideas, develop writing projects, work on campaigns, or simply to engage with Free Word’s programme of events. We also have a lecture theatre, where we host anything from panel discussions to live performances, gigs, workshops and more.

You can download our venue hire brochure to find out more about the specifics of our event spaces and meeting room bookings.

We are now in talks to set up the next great phase of the café space. We have some exciting opportunities to expand the provision so that the café can offer an extensive range of food and will also be equipped to provide full catering services for events and meetings. We’ll update on this in due time.
