About Lab Central

Lab Central is a digital makerspace for people to meet, learn, create and innovate at Redbridge Central Library in Ilford.

It's a place for makers, tinkerers, and inventors to work together, imagine and try new things while also having lots of fun!

They offer a varied range of ‘tech’ events including 3D printing, coding, robotics and virtual reality for people of all ages.

At Lab Central, you can try out equipment that you wouldn’t normally have access to and learn how to use it by participating in events and clubs.

Lab Central clubs

Come and take part in events in the creative space at Lab Central. They aim to offer as many regular ‘tech’ clubs as possible at libraries across Redbridge.
