Heart is open and now on Sundays! With the easing of national restrictions we are continuing to follow Government guidelines. Our meeting rooms and events spaces are available to hire – on booking let us know if you would like a space that allows social distancing for you and your group and we will accommodate. The Marquee in the playground is in use for private events and socially distanced events, including our TNL sessions. Assembly Bar & Kitchen is open for indoor and outdoor dining. Pulse is open for hot-deskers  and our shop is open selling gifts. For regular updates please continue to check our website and social media.

Support HEART

If you are able to spare anything for our Crowdfunder we would be so grateful. Any money raised will go to help for the marquee and other investments in our outside area to make this an even lovelier environment for all of you to use. Every penny helps us during this difficult time to ensure we have our building properly equipped and maintained, ready to serve our community.

We have been so overwhelmed by the generosity of HEART supporters over this time and hope you can still continue to offer that support. As ever, Whether it’s £1 or £100, it all makes a difference to HEART and we promise to value every donation and ensure we use it to help HEART survive and thrive.


Our Policies

Cafe Risk Assessment
Visitor Risk Assessment

From 1st September HEART no longer requires people to wear masks in the building. However, we continue to encourage all our users to do so for the safety of everyone. We’re gradually moving back to having more people in the building, and hosting events inside. We want all who come to HEART to feel secure, and respect individual choice, whilst also recognising many people still choose to wear masks.

We are keeping rooms – and Assembly Bar + Kitchen – well spaced and ventilated.

Keep it local, keep it HEART!

What’s On

Live gigs are back! Please check our listings in What’s On or look for posts on our social media to keep up to date. All upcoming gigs are scheduled for outside in the Marquee.

Humans of Heart: Jean and George
