Community Activities

Did you know that many of today’s popular sports were invented at the YMCA?  Community activities such as basketball, volleyball and racquetball are all YMCA inventions.  Our history is entrenched in leisure and here at The Chris Bryant Centre we aim to offer a range of leisure and community facilities to the local community.


We offer a cost effective multi-purpose community facility with a range of funded activities and work in partnership with a number of local providers.  Our facility has a large community hall which is available to hire for a number of events including children’s birthday parties, retirement functions, baby showers, wedding receptions and a host of other private functions.

We have a small friendly team waiting to make your experience a memorable one.  Simply  Click here to call 0121 478 4245 and speak to our events team or complete our contact form for more information.

Due to the huge success of last year’s event our “Give a Child a Gift” in partnership with Barnados is back this Christmas!!!

Come and join us on Saturday 2nd December 2017, 11am-1pm.  There will be a Bouncy Castle, Face painting, Soft Play, Disco & Party Games. Watch this space to see who our surprise special guest will be this year.

This is a Free Children’s Christmas Party open to the whole community. We just ask, that you bring along a wrapped gift labelled with the age & gender your gift would be suitable for. All the gifts will be distributed to local Children’s Centres by Barnardo’s Charity.

If you are unable to attend gift donations are still accepted and can be delivered to the centre in the run-up to the event.
