We have space! Come through our doors and you’ll find community groups, training, offices, support organisations, interest groups, kids clubs, music, exercise groups, martial arts, conferencing and more, (sometimes all at the same time). We aim to provide space for our community and others to do the things they want to do.
We are home to a lot of local groups and the rooms are also booked regularly by training organisations. If you need space for a regular group, a meeting or training, please get in touch.
Our rooms are bright, open and we think a bit funky. Some are more private than others and they are within a well-used community centre. This means people come and go, walk past the window and occasionally wave. If you seek silence, beige decor and serious faces, probably best to go to a hotel venue! We are home to third sector offices, local organisations and community groups, expect a bit of bustle and a bit of life.
The information here is for charities, local groups and other organisations who may want to book a space. We have restrictions on hire for private use, such as family parties, please see Further Information for more details.

Fits 10 people comfortably (up to 15 cosily). The birch tree wallpaper flows out through the big sunny windows into the trees outside (unless it’s raining, then the windows aren’t sunny). Direct access to the outside. Great for smaller meetings, workshops, interviews or one to ones.
Our favourite room, fits 40 people comfortably (up to 60 cosily). Big windows, wooden floor, flexible layout, PA, kitchenette, loads of light and direct access to the gardens. What else can we say (except this room is booked most of the time so be flexible if you want it).
The Main Hall
We like this room, it’s a big space (lovely for acoustic performances), it was refurbished in 2016 and now looks rather good. Suitable for up 120 people, works best around 75 – 100. PA available, blackout, immediate access to small garden (we’ll even let you use the pool table). The hall works for larger meetings, conferencing, performances or groups. It can be set up in pretty much any style to suit your requirements. Contact us for availability.
This is quite a funky little room. It’s got a big TV, a two seater chesterfield and bench table with stools. It’s good for meetings, small activities and workshops, also useful for if you just need a pop-up office for a day or so. It has a door straight outside as well. The room is used by young people in the evenings (so it’s got a playstation!).
A bigger, more open room. A bit more ‘formal’ in that it has a flexible tabling (is that a word?) and is ideal for group meetings or training sessions. It can fit up to 14 (ideally around 10) around the table, a few more if you don’t want the tables. This room also has a big TV, sink and long counter. Both the Birch and the Oak rooms have a good sized break out lobby space with sofas and table/chairs, included in the hire.
This is a steel cabin, clad with wood and stuck on the side of the building. Quirky, cosy, with a wood burning stove to keep you warm. The provision is basic (you need to come into 3Trees for the loo) but we like it. You can have your meeting surrounded by workbenches, stone carvings, art and who knows what else? We can also provide you with our own artist in residence if it helps! Up to 15 people with elbow room, depending on what you’re doing. Suitable for meetings, retreat-type activities, workshops, messy activities, sitting by the log burner and drinking scotch on a cold winter’s day.
