Facilities to hire

We have a number of premium facilities at Ellesmere College which we are currently looking to let out to sports clubs, fitness instructors and community groups.

Evening bookings

We are currently open for evening community sports bookings on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings throughout the year (excluding summer, Easter and Christmas closures). We are primarily aiming these sessions at reoccurring bookings from community groups/clubs and coaches or fitness professionals.

We currently offer three one hour slots for both our Main Hall/Theatre and Sports Hall. These are as follows:

Main Hall Theatre: 1830-1930, 1930–2030 and 2030–2130

Sports Hall: 1800-1900, 1900-2000 and 2000-2100

*Please contact us for the availability of our other facilities.

Half Term and Weekend one-off bookings

During the weekends and half terms our facilities are available to hire for ‘one-off’ bookings. This includes both sporting and non-sporting events. Please feel free to contact us with details of your requirements.

*Please note that we don’t allow alcohol on site.

Sports hall

Our newly built sports hall is equipped with recommended and approved Sport England multi-sport flooring. It has markings for numerous activities, including:

  • 4 x Badminton courts
  • Basketball
  • Futsal
  • Volleyball
  • 5-a-side football
The sports hall is equipped with drop down competition grade basketball nets and newly purchased Futsal, indoor football nets. The space also has an upstairs viewing gallery which can be hired for an additional fee (see small hall).

Main Hall/Theatre

Our Large Theatre/Main hall can accommodate 250 people. This vast and versatile space is can easily to be configured for a wide variety of uses. It comes equipped with:

  • Tiered retractable seating
  • A curtained stage area
  • Stage production lighting
  • Professional grade Audio/Speaker system
  • Projector and white wall screen
This large, multi-activity space is perfect for a wide variety of events and would be perfect for lectures, seminars, community theatre groups or any other event which requires a large indoor area.

Small Hall/ Viewing gallery

Our small hall overlooks the sports hall below and would be perfect to be used in conjunction with the sport hall as a viewing gallery to allow space for spectators. It could also be used as a space for small community groups or events.


The kitchen looks onto both of the halls and can be hired along with staffing for an additional cost.

MUGA (Daylight hours only)

The MUGA, or Multi Use Games Area, is a large outdoor open space. It is hard standing and fully enclosed. The uses for this versatile space are endless and would be perfect for a number of outdoor activities.

BMX pump track/Mountain bike trail (Daylight hours only)

Our purpose built BMX track and mountain bike trail are a new addition to the college. Both newly finished in 2015, they would be perfect for a qualified individual to set up a cycling club or deliver cycling lessons.

Meeting rooms

Ellesmere College is also equipped with multiple meeting rooms available to hire.
