Right in the centre of Lyme Regis is a deceptively large building, originally built in the 1920s as a church hall. By 2003 it was being run as a Club for Young People but it then closed due to lack of funds. After a long campaign, joined by Lyme Regis Town Council and many local people, the Trust was able to purchase the building in 2010 and make good the roof thanks to substantial grants from DCC Youth Service and LRTC. It is predominantly used for youth activities, music making for young people, dance, sport and other activities.
The venue has a large hall (with stage) and a separate large café and kitchen area, a small office and some storage. It can be hired as a residential centre for young people (we often have scout groups using it) and it is also available for adult groups to hire when not in use by Youth groups. It is used by health groups, a mother and toddler group, and for fitness training.
There are now fully accessible toilet and shower facilities.
The hall has recently been acoustically treated and is very suitable for band practice
Our plans are now taking shape to develop a training facility, a studio, education resources, and better residential facilities
