Free Word Centre

Free Word is where reading, writing and free speech come together; a dynamic production house for literature, politics and ideas.

Located in the heart of London but with an international outlook, the Free Word Centre is home to nine resident organisations and over 25 associates working across literature, literacy and free expression.

Free Word offers flexible meeting space and a lively café. A hub for innovation, collaboration and activism, Free Word runs a diverse programme of events, lectures and performances. We encourage debate and discussion across the worlds of culture and politics, committed to promoting openness, community and intellectual enquiry in a rapidly changing world.

Free Word is many things: a venue, a meeting place, an office space, a thinking space, a place of debate and risk taking, a window to the world, a robust voice for the word.
