Nestled in the heart of the Douglas Valley, the community-owned St. Bride’s Centre is the perfect venue for your own event or as an ideal place to take part in numerous activities.
At St. Bride’s we aim to offer a high-quality service and the warmest of welcomes. In 2012 a £1.2 million investment project transformed the former school into a vital community asset. The Centre is now a fabulous resource boasting flexible, contemporary spaces designed to meet the 21st century requirements of our customers.
