Join the Hackerspace
There are four Individual Membership rates to match the most common uses of the space:
- Students (£15pm); occasionally in the space during the day, mostly experiment in the evenings, and are strapped for cash 1
- Enthusiasts (£25pm); regularly use the space in the evenings and make regular use of the equipment and space
- Freelancers (£35pm); consistently in the space, regularly hot-desking with ongoing long term projects
- Angels (£75pm); kind people who support the space, regardless of their usage level
All members have voting and room booking2 privileges regardless of level.
If you’re not sure what category you fall in to, give us a shout on firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll talk it through.
If you wish, you can contact us on email@example.com to discuss alternative payment schemes such as Invoicing, BACS, Standing Orders, or Cash balances.
We’re funded by those that use the space every day for their ideas, experiments, and projects.
Every member has a say in what goes on and has voting powers in decisions made at Town Hall meetings. They also get access to all of our equipment and events, as well as the affiliation with great like-minded people.
