Community Event Spaces

We run a huge range of events here at Bootstrap, in our diverse event spaces. On any given week you can find a film screening organized by local young people at Dalston Roof Park, a photoshoot going on in the Bunker, a gallery opening in Print House gallery, Merci Marie serving up delicious food and much more!

We believe in the power of events to bring people together, and appreciate that many of our tenants and wider Bootstrap community need space as a platform for the work they’re doing, and are delighted to be able to offer the spaces free of charge to local community groups, young people and our tenants, or at a heavily discounted rate.

Dalston Roof Park (DRP) is a rooftop garden, tucked away in the heart of Hackney. With stunning views of the city and a blooming garden, it is the perfect place to relax, eat, drink and see London from a different angle.

We host more than 24,000 people a year at events ranging from film screenings to yoga classes, careers fairs to clothes swaps, secret gigs to weddings.

All profits from the roof and our new Bootstrap Friendship scheme go back into Bootstrap to support our charitable work.
