About The Centre

Set in the delightful grounds of Addison Howard Park, the centre is available to hire for a wide range of activities such as wedding receptions, conferences, meetings and dances as well as live and recorded music events. It is Kempston’s largest venue with a seating capacity of up to 250 people and a standing capacity for many more. There is a fully staffed licensed bar if required and on-site parking for 90+ vehicles. The ground floor of the centre is fully accessible and baby-changing facilities are also available. For music and theatrical events there is a large, fully lit proscenium stage with changing rooms and sound system.
The Centre is an independent and self-funded community facility owned by the people of Kempston and administered on their behalf by the Kempston Community Association. The Addison Centre is currently used by a number of local community groups on a weekly or monthly basis. These users include the U3A, Ceroc Dancing, the National Trust Association, The Grace Church and others. However at present there is capacity to increase the number of regular bookings and the centre is also available for one-off events, conferences, birthday parties, wedding receptions, dances, discos etc.
