    Holiday period contact

    Our one and only part-time administrator is away during the latter part of August, so any enquiries will take longer than usual to get a response. Possibly several days. Please email rather than leaving a phone message if possible. We will get back to you as quickly as we can, but at this holiday time of year, please bear with us. Thank you.

    Nobody’s mug


    We’ve recently made another small improvement to the Centre’s facilities, with the addition of a supply of stylish Coulsdon Community Centre mugs, available for users in both the upstairs kitchenette and the downstairs kitchen. Please feel free to use them. We have also replenished our supply of cutlery, so we have a full complement of new knives, forks and spoons. A few of these will be kept in the kitchen drawers. However, as experience proves they have a tendency to disappear over time, the bulk supply will only be made available on request to the administrator for particular functions or events.

    Refurbishment of the upstairs hall



    We’ve nearly completed the refurbishment of the upstairs hall at the Centre, redecorated throughout, with a new kitchenette installed for the convenience of users, and now with smart new Polyflor sprung vinyl flooring. The old, ill-assorted metal cabinets will shortly be replaced with a brand new set, and roller blinds (also in blue-grey) will be fitted to all windows. If you use this room at the Centre, we hope you’ll be pleased with the improvement.

    ‘The Ladykillers’ – classic Ealing black comedy at Coulsdon

    The Centre’s resident theatre company (and Coulsdon’s finest), Theatre Workshop Coulsdon (TWC) will be staging ‘The Ladykillers’ at the Centre, from Saturday 2nd April through to Saturday 9th April. There are seven performances of Graham (Father Ted) Linehan’s hilarious adaptation of this classic Ealing comedy, but they’re not on every day, so for more details, or to book tickets online, please head over to Theatre Workshop’s website: www.twcoulsdon.org.uk

    Our phone and broadband are currently down… :(

    We’ve been having problems with our phone and broadband for the last 2 – 3 weeks and are waiting for engineers to come out (again!) and try to fix it. Meanwhile, phone messages are not getting through, and the Centre has no internet access at present.

    So if you have an urgent enquiry, your best route is to contact us via email on coulsdoncom@yahoo.com

    We can access emails remotely, and will do our best to deal with your enquiry that way. Other than that, I’m afraid you’ll just have to bear with us until our broadband provider fixes the fault.

    The Centre’s 80th birthday event – 25th November


    We were very pleased to welcome the Mayor of Croydon, Councillor Patricia Hay-Justice, along to the Centre on Wednesday 25th November. The Mayor, accompanied by a number of users young and old, was there to unveil a plaque and open our smart new look foyer.

    The plaque commemorates not only the 80th anniversary of the Centre, but also the 1946 re-opening of the Centre as a boys club by Viscount Montgomery of Alamein, following the end of the Second World War. During the war, the Centre had been used as a civil defence base. The original plaque commemorating Monty’s visit in 1946 has long since vanished, so this was an opportunity to restore one little important piece of the Centre’s history. We were also pleased to be joined on the day by Colonel John Power, of Coulsdon Manor Rotary. The Rotary Club funded the original construction of the then ‘Coulsdon Boys Club’ back in 1935, so we were delighted to have a representative of that important local organisation with us to mark our 80th anniversary. Thanks to all concerned, and especially Paul Ford, one of the Association’s trustees, who organised the event.

    On stage this weekend: The golden age of wireless comes to Coulsdon Community Centre

    To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the BBC Light Programme, Theatre Workshop Coulsdon presents an affectionate look at the Golden Age of British wireless. An evening of original light entertainment, one-act plays and sketches nearly all written or adapted by members of TWC, along with live music and songs from the period.

    With a stiff upper lip and a little tongue in cheek, our tales of plucky public schoolgirls in peril and bold spacemen taking on evil invaders from Venus, of eerie ghosts and devilish murder mysteries are set in a studio and enacted as a radio show might have been. To amuse, enthral and above all, entertain. Tune in…

    Saturday 21st March, Sunday 22nd March, Thursday 26th March, Friday 27th March, Saturday 28th March and Sunday 29th March.

    All performances at 8pm.

    Tickets £9 Concessions £6
