Saturday 11 July
Bar open from 7pm but with

It was great to welcome people safely back to the Chantry Centre last weekend and we will be opening the bar again this Saturday 11th July from 7pm until 11.30pm, but with a change that TABLES MUST BE BOOKED IN ADVANCE

This is to help ensure a control on numbers and also so that if you reserve a table you know you will have it for the whole evening to enjoy.🍻

The bar operates from the Lister Hall and there is also access to the garden, with all tables a clear 2m apart - so don’t miss out, book your table today by:

Emailing info@chantrycentre.org with an arrival time, number of people (max of 6 per table), contact name and phone number.

If an email is not possible, please text Mark on 07702 676 996 with the same information as above.

Many thanks for the ongoing support and co-operation.

Re-Opening 4th July

The Government has announced that with effect from 4th July community centres and other multi-use community facilities are able to re-open.
The Trustees of the Chantry Centre have decided that it will re-open on this date but, consistent with government guidance, there will be a need to assess individual activities before they can re-start.

Clearly the size of the Chantry Centre (including the garden) and multiple entrances means that it should be easier for social distancing to be observed then that for many smaller facilities. For this reason the underlying principle which will be adopted is that all activities will be subject to strict adherence to social distancing of 2 metres rather than 1 metre with risk mitigation.

Recognising the need to start to generate income, it has been decided to open the bar on a trial basis from 3pm on Saturday 4th July. 
The bar will operate from the Lister Hall and have access to the garden, with all tables a clear 2m apart. Subject to the trial, bar opening times will be published thereafter.

Your support over the coming weeks will be very much appreciated.
We will be in contact shortly with regular hirers to discuss future plans for progressive re-starting of activities recognising that unfortunately it is still not permitted to hold:
  • indoor sports or fitness activity 
  • indoor performances including drama, comedy or music 
  • large gatherings or celebrations.

It will clearly be some time before all hirers can restart their activities indoors.  

Where possible however, we would like to support the use of the Chantry Centre garden for increased outdoor activities, as well as offering the Chantry Centre to others for hire where its scale and facilities enable full social distancing (e.g. for ad hoc meetings).

Please do get in touch with any enquiries:



Future events will take place adhering to government guidelines relating to COVID-19.
