Benefiting the community of Handsworth, Sheffield

Giving something back to Sheffield

Our not-for-profit organisation has been hosting events, conferences and meetings in our variety of rooms for over 40 years.

As a registered charity (number 1139416) all profits generated through weddings, functions and conferencing are invested straight back into the up keep of the building to provide a community building at the heart of Handsworth.

It allows us to subsidise the rents of classes like yoga, karate, boxercise, art society and many more. It helps us house the local Handsworth museum and to run our own weekly social groups like the pensioners lunch clubs , tea dances and mums and toddlers.

Several times a year we also run big community events like the bonfire and fire works night, summer fayre and Christmas markets. As well as the recent creation of our community growing garden and small allotment scheme.

None of this would be possible without you booking your event here – thanks for your support.
