Really Free School booted out of the Hand and Racquet, Whitcomb St, London

Really Free School at the Hand and Racquet, 48 Whitcomb Street, London, WC2H 7HA evicted

The building had lain empty for years on end, so I was pleased when the Really Free School squatted this old central London pub and put it to productive use.

While it was squatted, the space was used for film screenings, workshops, discussions, lessons, skill shares and debates.

Once again, the pub remains empty and a wasted resource.
