Bookings and Pre-booked Events

We are currently working through the challenges associated with this decision, please bear with us and one of our team will be in touch with any customers who have pre-booked activities or sessions across all our venues. We ask customers to be patient with us during this time as we have very large volumes to deal with, a reduced workforce and limited access to our systems. 
 
We understand the importance of physical activity, exercise, keeping fit and engaging in the arts and other creative activity and that it is essential to the wellbeing of our customers, particularly at this time. During our closure we will do our best to share information online to help our customers stay fit and healthy and to support positive physical and mental wellbeing. We will also be providing online sports and arts activities and exercises for you and your children to engage with.
