Hire Our Space

Partisan has 3 different spaces available for hire. As well as having a great space for your event, your booking will be helping support a socially responsible community project. Every penny is put back into running and improving Partisan.

Our bars and events are run by volunteers. Volunteers believe in Partisan and are giving up their time for free. Everyone in the venue is required to be respectful at all times. We have a safer spaces policy which includes respecting everyone regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ability or race. This creates a supportive, open and friendly environment for events which may often be considered radical or marginal

Partisan has hundreds of members, but we have three part-time members of staff who are the contact point for bookings and events.You can liaise with them via our events email address: events@partisancollective.net

Space at Partisan

What can Partisan be hired for?

You can hire Partisan for private meetings, conferences, seminars, workshops and classes, pop up shops, cafes, and markets, location filming and photography, acoustic performances, production / theatre rehearsals and performances, and not-for-profit film screenings.

As we currently do not have a full premise license, we can only run a limited number of events with licensable activities. These include the sale of alcohol, and regulated entertainment (including live amplified music). If you’re interesting in running a gig or club night with us, contact us to talk about your event first, as we will only have specific dates available. We currently give preference to licensable events that are run as Partisan fundraisers!
