Kendal LA9 4BD
Since October 2015 we have had the privilege of taking care of a wonderful community building, renamed the Appleby Hub. Following a period of extensive renovation and repair after the floods in December 2015, we launched the Hub in May 2016.
Today the Hub is used by a great variety of community groups and classes. Our flexible spaces make it an ideal venue for dance and fitness classes, art groups, meetings and events, youth groups, and countless more. The climbing wall is back in action too, with open climbing sessions coming in February and March. Our weekly timetable is available on the Appleby Hub facebook page, and on our notice board on the front of the building.
One of the highlights of the last 12 months has been the opening of our brand new community cafe. Nestled in amongst the Rotary second hand book shop, the cafe is becoming increasingly popular and we’ve had some fantastic feedback from our visitors. The cafe serves up homemade artisan wholefoods which we are really proud of. At the moment the cafe is open Wednesday to Friday, plus the last Saturday of every month to coincide with our monthly Hubcraft market.
As well as social spaces, we also offer studios for long term lease. These are available at a rate of £2500 per year and include wi-fi, and all utilities. Each studio is light and bright, providing an ideal space for a small local business to utilise. Hot desking space is also available - call in for a look around! If you would like any details on any of our rooms, contact us on 017683 51640, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The main hall is ideal for parties and events, with a capacity of 100. It cost £14 per hour to hire the main hall. If you would like to discuss a possible booking with us, we’d love to hear from you.
The Bennett Room has a maximum capacity of 40 and is one of our favourites! Hiring this room includes use of the projector and screen, refreshment facilities, and tables and chairs, all for £14 per hour. The Bennett Room is situated on the first floor but has lift access.
If you’re looking for a smaller space, we have three light and airy studio spaces available for long and short term hire. The potential uses for these lovely rooms really are endless. If you’re a fledgling business, a seasoned freelancer, or an artist who’s outgrown their current space, get in touch to come and view our newly created spaces.
