A place to connect, read, learn and play



We have produced a timetable showing all the regular activities currently on offer at the Centre – click here to view it. The table also allows you to see when the various facilities are available to book. Activities in purple are run by external instructors or clubs and you need to contact them directly to join. Their contact details are on this website by choosing the sport you are interested in here.  Activities in green are run directly be the Centre, so contact us to book. Some of these activities are term time only. Alternatively, you can view a list of all the activities currently available and their instructors’ contact details here.

  • Mondays: 6-8pm – Sports Hall (or part of it)
