The Hive welcomes local charities, community groups and organisations to marvellous meeting spaces.

Local charity or not-for-profit community groups can meet in our coffee lounge free of charge. Or they can book our meeting spaces and get the 1st 1.5hrs for free.

Local businesses can also meet in the coffee lounge FOC for the 1st 1.5hrs, or hire our meeting spaces at very reasonable rates.

We only ask that the group orders hot drinks or tipples from our licensed bar during the meeting and simple snacks from the Hive, or Greek meze from Kypseli Greek Taverna, just two doors down.
