Are you free on Fridays? …. if you are come along to our Freelance Friday. The doors are open to anyone who is looking for a space to work, and to catch up with other freelancers in the area.
Co-working and freelancing is the future, so why not come along to MadLab. The fee is a flat £5 all day – your money gets you open wifi, unlimited tea and coffee, and for those eager beavers a breakfast buffet of crumpets, croissants and even some five-a-day fruit. You can get dinner in any of the local eateries (Common have really nice burgers), bring a pack lunch, or heat up something in our renovated kitchen.
