The Centre (Bury St Edmunds)

Looking for a lovely space for your class / service / workshop / event / party?

The Centre is a carefully restored Victorian school house. It’s a lovely place to be, with lots of period features such as high ceilings, exposed brick, contemporary colours and lighting, large period windows and loads of natural light. We offer three peaceful spaces for hire, or you can hire the whole building. We’re in the town centre of Bury St Edmunds, at the end of a street full of independent shops. We’re five mins walk from bus and train stations as well as long stay car parking, and there are 30 min parking bays / disabled parking in the street. We are suitable for a wide range of uses and offer favourable rates for community services and activities. Our aim is that The Centre is accessible to all. It has been designed to be wheelchair friendly with a level access WC and wide doorways. We have a hearing loop and baby changing facilities. The Centre also houses our vegetarian cafe – The Old School Café.

We’ve been dressing the spaces over the past couple of years, and added plants and new furniture. Come and see us and say hello!
