At Open Project Night, we open the doors to community groups, businesses and individuals that aim to create a better Lambeth. Every Monday at Open Project Night you can...
  • Access free space for your community events or meetings
  • Trade and learn new skills for your project/business
  • Meet new partners and become part of a local peer network


  1. Join the Facebook group and become part of the conversations
  2. Join us on Monday at 6.30pm or use the booking system to save a space for a larger group meeting.  
  3. Introductions and welcome are led by our facilitator, and a chance to identify the people and projects you'd like to talk to – or your opportunity to share your own project.
  4. Break into separate areas for events, co-working or networking.
