What’s On at Malling Community Centre in August 2022?

Put that school uniform away, the summer holidays are here! The What’s On guide for Malling Community Centre in August is full of exciting activities to keep you busy over the next month.

This month, we’re welcoming Neal’s Medieval Sword Fighting class, which is usually hosted at the All Saints Centre, due to essential repairs at that centre this month. Because of the summer holidays, a few hirers have also scheduled in a well-deserved break. Please make sure you check with the organiser of the event or class you’re attending before coming down to avoid disappointment.

The centre will also be closed for a few days between 8 and 12 August for some essential repairs. However, our hard-working team will still be beavering away behind the scenes, and if you have any queries or enquiries about hiring our centre at any point, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Take a look at the full guide below:

All Saints Centre closed in August 2022

Due to essential maintenance work going on, and several regular hirers taking the school summer holiday period off, the All Saints Centre will be closed for the month of August. The team are looking forward to seeing everybody in September.

Should you wish to make contact, we will be picking up emails and our other venues are operating as usual. We are still taking bookings for any hiring needs for the rest of the year and into 2023, please get in touch with any enquiries you might have.

The centre is currently home to developing community and arts organisations to meet, workshop, rehearse and perform.  All Saints Centre is a hybrid venue functioning as both as a village hall and a performing arts space. At its best it supports its threefold aim through a commitment to community arts projects. These are participatory activities in which the local community can engage for the purpose of both self development, skill development and community building. The All Saints Centre acts as a creative hub by offering a safe place to create, explore, perform, discuss and gather.
