Description

Welcome to effraspace – your local family venue.

To find out more about effraspace, we have to go back to our founder, Pinter & Martin. Pinter & Martin is a Brixton-based non-fiction publishing company specialising in books on pregnancy, childbirth and parenting. For over twenty years, Pinter and Martin hosted book launches, groups, workshops and courses from their office, and as their numbers grew they began to look for a bigger space to host these events.

Then when an old dilapidated community centre down the road become available, it seemed like the perfect fit. Fast-forward through six months of planning and six months of renovations, effraspace was officially opened in April 2016.

Now effraspace is host to a range of activities, from postnatal and pregnancy classes, to meditation workshops, free film nights, private hire and a licensed cafe. We hold a full schedule of baby, toddler, kids, adult and seniors classes – all with fully certified and DBS insured teachers. You are welcome to pop in for a coffee or a chat at any time, and we cater to mums and babies, prams and toddlers in our breastfeeding-friendly cafe.

For those looking for something fun to do in Brixton, we often host book launches, family workshops, guided meditation sessions and free film nights. More information on what's on is available on our website. As we are still a relatively new venue, we'd love to hear any feedback you've got, whether it's something you'd like us to host, or something you'd be interested in attending - we are open to ideas!

Our main hall is suitable for events, talks, classes and film screenings. It boasts 72 square metres, with bamboo flooring and underfloor heating as well as a projector, sound system and storage space. The space is suitable for 80+ seated, or 25 in the case of yoga/mat exercise workshops.

Thought I'd give baby yoga a go for the first time and was pleasantly surprised by how welcoming the teacher, other Mums and the staff were. As a new Mum, going to these things by yourself can be quite intimidating, but not a bit of that here. Will definitely be back!

Wonderful space, very friendly staff, super child friendly and a great selection of classes. I attended the Pregnancy Yoga last year which helped me feel very relaxed and have been going to the Postnatal Pilates since to get back in shape! The online booking system is very easy to use and the yoga mats are super comfy!

Attended the mindful pregnancy classes and it was the highlight of my week during my pregnancy. So relaxing and great tips for breathing, stretching, relaxation and Labour preparation. It even helped turn my breach baby. Can’t wait to attend the baby classes once baby and I have found our groove.

I have attended a few mother and baby/toddler classes here and it’s always a joyous experience. The new booking system is easy to use, the welcome and cafe area are lovely and the classes themselves absolutely brilliant. Just frustrating to be back to work and not able to get to classes so easily! When I am able to, it’s total bliss!

I have attended various classes for 2 years (pregnancy yoga, pilates, baby yoga/massage) since Effra began, purchased from the extensive birth bookshop and been to the breastfeeding cafe. Incredibly friendly and flexible owners - very calm setting. The 6 class pass across various classes is very flexible especially for new parents whereas for other venues/classes attendance is instead ‘mandated’ weekly against a specific class to receive value. This venue has a community feel to it where you are known personally not just a number in a class. Particularly recommend the pregnancy yoga which is not just yoga - Ingrid imparts years of experience on a plethora of pregnancy/birth matters.
