Good times at The Collective Old Oak in 2018

It’s been a big year at The Collective Old Oak. We’ve opened our doors for the world’s biggest architecture festival, Open House London, grown a community roof garden, celebrated Earth Day and Pride, held our own Olympics, opened a restaurant, and so much more. Then there’s everything we got up to within our events programme – from roaming bands to choirs, business talks to freelancer lunches, collage clubs to screen printing, we’ve got our hands dirty and learned a few new tricks to boot. To celebrate, we thought we’d put together a little good times flip-book with some of the highlights, in no particular order.

We celebrated the launch of our Bar + Kitchen…

and opened our doors for Open House 2018…

Our roof terrace got busy, becoming the home of our community roof garden

The roof terrace also hosted our own spin on the Olympics…

and our Pride celebrations.

We kept our canal clean…

Speaking of furry friends, we were paid a visit by some therapy dogs (made our year).

To top the year off we threw a birthday party for our CEO Reza, in the lobby.

It’s been a good year. Roll on 2019!
