Venue Hire 

Black Cultural Archives’ has beautifully transformed a Grade II listed building into a purpose-built space.

Located on the historic Windrush Square, our unique heritage centre is the perfect space to host inspirational events. We offer a number of rooms for corporate, community and private events. Our space benefits from the light and welcoming rooms with Georgian sash windows, fully equipped with WiFi access and opportunities for presentation facilities. In addition a café space seamlessly opens on to a private courtyard.

As the UK’s first Black heritage centre situated in the heart of the culturally diverse and creative hub of Brixton, this is a perfect space for away days, meeting spaces, receptions, seminars and talks.

All revenue raised from venue hire supports our exhibitions, events and learning programmes. Whether you are looking for a beautiful space, or something unique, you will help us to continue our work to inspire generations and bring our vision to life.
