Upton Community Centre

The Upton Centre is a spacious, Victorian building with a large hall, small hall, meeting and activity room. It is managed by the council.

The Upton Centre is currently closed because the boiler has failed and there is no heating, making it unsafe for residents and staff. The centre will stay closed while we investigate the problem.

We are working with groups that regularly use the centre to find alternative venues in the meantime.

Read our full Upton Centre statement and our statement following the review of the centre since its closure.

On 19 March cabinet members agreed to launch a six-week consultation in to the future of the Upton Centre. This consultation has now closed and a report is expected to be presented to cabinet in June.
