With families moving away from each other; the average age of getting onto the property ladder going up; and the buy-to-let industry encouraging a culture of short-term lets, we have never been more isolated as a society.*
If you’ve ever wondered how you can find your people and recreate that feeling of kinship, tribe, family or neighbourliness then join tonight’s panel where we hear from different households who have turned their London properties into a community.
The panel will be announced shortly.
Doors at 7pm, panel discussion starts at 7.30pm
About Commune Club

If the cost of the event would prohibit your attendance, please get in touch.
We also have some volunteering opportunities available.
