Located in a modern railway arch in the newly redeveloped Union Yard Arches, the Africa Centre is a vibrant, multidisciplinary hub which exists to promote African creativity and entrepreneurship.
The Africa Centre also has a variety of unique spaces available for hire, offering an ideal setting for corporate and private events.
Split across ground and mezzanine floors, the Arch is a bright and spacious venue which is ideal for photo shoots, along with press and product launch events. Both areas are available for dry hire – the mezzanine space can accommodate 70 seated and 110 standing, whereas the ground floor can host 200 standing and 130 seated.
The Gallery is located on the 2nd floor of the Africa Centre main building and is a cocoon for intimate and elegant events, from art exhibitions, film screenings to corporate meetings and receptions. The space has a fully-fitted kitchen and disabled access.
The Centre also provides a collaborative workspace for freelancers, start-ups and micro-enterprises with connections, interests and projects in Africa: THE HUB. Available on a membership basis from as little as £95/month, THE HUB boasts permanent and hot-desk facilities as well as dedicated meeting and lounge space. Benefits include access to training and workshops as well as priority booking for the Africa Centre events.
