Book the Venue

The Commune is a radical Pan-African, socialist and feminist bookstore and coffee shop. We also sell records with a focus on African music.

There is a fee for using The Commune for any event or filming if users are from a profit making institution or from a donor funded institution. 

Users from social movements, trade unions, community or student groups are not required to pay a fee for using the spaces at The Commune. 

An arrangement or booking for this will have to be made at least two weeks ahead of the event or filming. Changes to the aesthetic of the bookshop will not be allowed. 

The Commune is not available for bookings during week days. Contact us for rates and availability at
