Welcome to effraspace – your local family venue. 

To find out more about effraspace, we have to go back to our founder, Pinter & Martin.  Pinter & Martin is a Brixton-based non-fiction publishing company specialising in books on pregnancy, childbirth and parenting. For over twenty years, Pinter and Martin hosted book launches, groups, workshops and courses from their office, and as their numbers grew they began to look for a bigger space to host these events. 

Then when an old dilapidated community centre down the road become available, it seemed like the perfect fit. Fast-forward through six months of planning and six months of renovations, effraspace was officially opened in April 2016. 

Now effraspace is host to a range of activities, from postnatal and pregnancy classes, to meditation workshops, free film nights, private hire and a licensed cafe. We hold a full schedule of baby, toddler, kids, adult and seniors classes – all with fully certified and DBS insured teachers. You are welcome to pop in for a coffee or a chat at any time, and we cater to mums and babies, prams and toddlers in our breastfeeding-friendly cafe.

For those looking for something fun to do in Brixton, we often host book launches, family workshops, guided meditation sessions and free film nights. More information on what's on is available here. As we are still a relatively new venue, we'd love to hear any feedback you've got, whether it's something you'd like us to host, or something you'd be interested in attending - we are open to ideas! 

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to call or email us. We are available from 9am - 8pm Monday to Friday at info@effra.space or on 020 3633 4733. Scroll through our website to see what we have on offer, and we will hopefully see you at effraspace soon!
