Kesgrave Community Centre building

Kesgrave Community and Conference Centre has been serving the local community for over 50 years.

Operating as a non-profit making charitable trust, the Centre works for the benefit of the community in achieving its aim of providing competitively priced, comfortable and up to date facilities for a host of community led activities.

The Centre is located just outside Ipswich in Suffolk and is available for private functions, corporate and business events, weddings, christenings, funerals and private parties. Our excellent facilities, coupled with a safe and secure environment, makes it the ideal choice of venue whether you are looking for a location for a small family celebration or a function room to cater for 270 people.

The Centre sets and meets the highest standards of service.

The grounds and outside space, including 2 large free car parks, are home to a variety of clubs, associations and organisations, and is regularly used for fundraising and charity events.

We regularly consult with our customers with regard to the effective and imaginative use of our facilities and the program of activities which we offer. Whatever the occasion, our dedicated team will tailor the package to best suit your needs; our priority is to put the needs of our customers first at all times.

The charity continues to provide high quality indoor and outdoor facilities for hire by local clubs, organisations and residents at a subsidised cost. It engages with local councils and the police to provide activities for young people.

  • To increase accessibility by local residents
  • To increase the profile of the facility within the local business community
  • To increase usage of the facility by the local community
  • To ensure that a varied program of activities and past times are available for the local community to access.
