Regular clubs and groups meet at the Fieldgate 

We are proud to be the home to many clubs and groups and we host a busy timetable of activities and classes, both indoors and outdoors, for you to enjoy. You can see what’s going on this month on the calendar to your right.

“What strikes us, as hirers of venues in various locations over the years, is how willing to help and accommodate the team at the Fieldgate Centre are. Always flexible, helpful with a genuine desire for us to be there. We feel like a valuable part of the Centre’s community rather than a ‘bother’ which is how so many venue staff have treated us in the past. It’s a real pleasure to work with the Fieldgate Centre Committee and staff and we hope to do continue to do so for many years.”  (Regular hirer)
