Walsworth Community Centre

Built in 1852, the Community Centre started out as the old Walsworth School. The building has retained much of its character and charm over the years and now caters for every age group. Bouncy castles and soft play can be catered for. Tables, chairs, china and cutlery are included with the hire charge. Both halls have dedicated kitchens and toilets, and both have their own external entrances.

The Walsworth Community Centre is also available for hire for social occasions, meetings, and for those wishing to start a local interest group.

The Centre is administered by the volunteers of Walsworth Community Association, registered charity number 302485. We are a small group dedicated to serving the community, and we rely on the support of the community.
