Pop Brixton

About us

Pop Brixton is an original project that supports local jobs, training, and enterprise.

It is a community initiative designed to drive progress and bring prosperity to local communities through enterprise. Pop Brixton transformed a disused plot of land into a pioneering space that showcases the most exciting independent businesses from Brixton and Lambeth, providing a unique destination that supports them to set up shop and share space, skills and ideas.

As well as providing the space local businesses need to thrive, we work with our members to make a positive difference in the community. We all invest our time and skills into charitable projects, we provide free space for community events of every kind, and we host regular open workshops ranging from kids' art classes to horticulture training in our community garden.

This is a temporary project, delivered in partnership between Pop Brixton and Lambeth Council, and is currently planned to remain in place until 2022. Carl Turner Architects are the designers of Pop Brixton.

On Friday, Saturday and Bank Holiday Sunday's we are an over 18 venue from 6pm. Persons under 18 years old will need to be accompanied by a parent/guardian after 6pm. ID will be required.

Our community

At the heart of our project is a focus on supporting and engaging our community. So as well as providing space for local businesses, we work hard to get involved in positive projects in the area.

We offer discounted rents to social enterprises and total start-ups who need space to get their business off the ground.

All our members use their time and skills to support local causes, investing at least 1 hour each week into a Community Investment Scheme managed by The Brixton Pound. Through this partnership we are constantly working with local schools, charities and community organisations.

Our event spaces and public areas are available for free hire for community events like meetings, fundraisers and workshops.

To help us make a positive impact we are guided by a steering group of local residents, business owners and community figures.
