About Us

A Brief History of The Pallant Centre

The Pallant Centre is a much loved resource in the town, with many local people having fond memories of the roles it has played in their lives.

Pallant House was known as ‘Church House’ for some years (since its acquisition by the parish in the 1920s).

It is believed that Church House and its accompanying Coach House were first built in 1812. The Church Hall was added in 1926 (now known as the Pallant Hall). It was a memorial hall for those who fell in the Great War.

The last major redevelopment took place in 1959 and whilst popular and very well located, the buildings do suffer from a historic lack of investment.


Here’s a list of all the exciting up and coming events happening at the centre.

All events are available to book via the links below, or alternatively telephone or pop into our office.

Community for All

At the Pallant Centre we aim to see a sustainable facility that is used effectively and proactively. We endeavour to use it to its maximum capacity for the benefit of our local community.  We want it to become a focus for the community through active participation in the widest possible range of programmes and services. To that end ongoing fundraising is required to help conserve the building for our modern activities.
