Programme of events at our hub space

Gradually we are making more and more use of our space at Links Studios. Hopefully our fellow tenants are getting used to us! We’ve launched a programme of events there which everyone is welcome to attend – and you can drop by when we’re open. Currently, we plan to be open on Fridays from 10 ’til 1 and then 2 until 4. Give us a call on 07453 912697 when you’re coming down. Back in July we had a coffee and cake afternoon, well attended by a chattering bunch who came up with a load of ideas for future activities…

Open House at the Links Studios in July

We’ve moved into our Green Hive hub space now and we’re gradually getting set up.

Find us at the WASPS Links Studio, Grant Street, Fishertown. We are open 10-4 Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Maybe people are leaving less around, certainly we’re aware…
