In line with national guidance we are undertaking a phased reopening from the 12th April 2021. We are operating within all government guidelines, and just SO PLEASED to have people in our building again! Community Centres need a community to function.. and ours is back.

As well as our main performance and meeting space we can now take bookings in the Studio for smaller meetings and also have a covered outdoor space available.

If you would like to book to use our building please review our Space Hire information and get in touch if you need information on the restrictions we are still working under, in terms of numbers and social distancing.
