Take a look at our busy calendar of live events, films and performances on the events page. Over 40 community groups meet here weekly or monthly with over 500 hundred people attending so there is sure to be something for you. On our rooms page you will see a wide range of spaces you can hire for your own group or for a special occasion. Look in the calendar to see what is available, then call or email us to make a booking.
