the Brixton £

the Brixton £

Did you know Brixton has its own money? Since 2009 the ‘Brixton Pound’ has been circulating, accepted at over 200 local independent businesses, including those amongst Brixton’s many markets.

The currency (which you can spend in paper or electronic form) is designed to support Brixton businesses and encourage local trade and production. It’s a complementary currency, working alongside (not replacing) pounds sterling, for use by independent local shops and traders. The B£ gives local traders and customers the chance to get together to support each other and maintain the diversity of the high street.

The Brixton Pound is also about building a more connected community and celebrating Brixton’s character.
