The Sumac Centre is an independent community resource and social centre. It houses a vegan café, social club bar and Veggies Catering Campaign, providing information and resources for local residents, and members of the wider campaigning communinty concerned about human and animal rights, social justice and environmental issues. There is also a community garden, a modest library, internet access and bookshop.
We have a regular communal meal called People’s Kitchen on Saturday evenings.
We also host the Forest Fields Social Club, a bar which often opens on Fridays and Saturdays from 7pm-11pm. It is advised to check The Sumac Centre Facebook Group, or the Events Diary, before traveling from afar.
The Sumac also provides resources and a meeting space for groups and individuals working to promote social justice, environmental awareness, peace, and animal rights.
The space is sometimes used for music events, film showings and sales in order to raise money and awareness.
