The Storey’s Field Centre will be run jointly by the University of Cambridge and Cambridge City Council in a joint venture, the Storey’s Field Community Trust.  The Centre will provide a place for a wide variety of groups to use, a venue for events and a place to allow the opportunity for the community to meet and socialise. 

THE BUILDING INCLUDES:

  • a main hall for up to 180 people with a sprung dance floor, a balcony, and dedicated storage. This hall will suit a range of uses from formal concerts or lectures, through dynamic activity such as dance classes or ‘zumba’, to Brownies or film clubs, fashion shows, weddings or fairs
  • a medium scale, high space for up to 50 people, also with a sprung dance floor, opening to a contained outside space. The contained outside space was a key requirement of the brief arising from consultation, to allow for the likes of toddler’s parties. The room will also accommodate dance, meetings, yoga etc. It will have a kitchenette and dedicated storage.
  • a smaller room for up to 20 people. This is also multi-purpose but more intimate in scale, suitable for meetings, private consultations, and craft classes etc. It has storage, a sink and tea-making facilites.

The Centre, which has been designed by McInnes Usher McKnight Architects (MUMA), will be a new building open to the public in 2017. It is intended that the Community Centre will be open and welcoming, providing a range of flexible spaces that will cater for a variety of uses and residents’ needs. The Centre has been designed to fulfil ambitious aspirations to provide a building of the highest calibre that will serve both the new community and the wider Cambridge public.

Further information will be available nearer the time.  If you are a local group who would like more information about the Community Chest fund, please get in touch with Lisa Pollitt by email.
