Zumba with Michelle

Thinking of holding a regular class?

Not only is the Centre perfect for events but we also hire rooms out for a huge variety of regular activities and classes. The Centre is a thriving community facility in the heart of Leigh-on-Sea so we do have limited availability, however our helpful staff will always endeavour to fit you in! 

If you are interested in starting a regular class at the centre you can benefit from a reduced room hire rate, full set up of furniture for your sessions, free use of equipment such as projectors, and free advertising on our website, social media pages and around the Centre. 

If you would like to learn more about starting a regular class and to check availability please contact us directly on 01702 477248 or email.
