I don't think Geovation are at 1 Seckford Street anymore (Future Cities
Catapult have taken over IIRC), which is a shame as Seckford Street is a
really nice venue. It' still available for events, but I suspect with
substantial costs. I don't think Geovation have moved very far away.

I suspect Andy is right & tech spaces are the best bet. There may be a few
churches/community centres in Central London who regularly rent rooms at
(for London) modest prices: for instance, Westminster Friends Meeting
House, but availability for a Saturday is likely t constrained. Many of
these places now pretty much fund themselves by using heavily promoting
their facilities for commercial events (Friends House on Euston Road
charges around £500 for a room on a Saturday).

Universities are another possibility but, even with a staff member as
advocate, societies I've been involved in have found the bureaucracy
involved far too unwieldy. Places like UCL which were relatively lax have
had to tighten up a lot after it was found an (honorary) academic was
hosting eugenics advocacy events.
