Mackworth Community Hall is a fabulous venue in the heart of Mackworth estate. 24 fit Derby have recently made it home to Zumba, Konga, Clubbercise and Pound, and it’s really popular. I’m not surprised. The hall has been lovingly updated by Paul…. and his love and dedication can be felt in the whole building. It’s clean, new, and shiny with great facilities including a kitchen area. The hall is a lovely size with a stage and a sprung floor, so it’s kind on the knees even if the classes don’t prove so kind on the rest of you! It has two lovely big doors you can throw open when it gets too hot and the car park is right outside. It’s perfect for Clubbercise because it is already fitted with disco lights and spotlights. Love this venue.
A lot of people walk to classes from the estate itself and they love being able to do that, but it’s also really convenient if you live in Mickleover, Allestree, Duffield and the surrounding villages.

Mackworth Community Hall is behind Saint Francis church and is not to be confused with Mackworth Youth and Community Centre that is next door. The venue is situated in the centre of Mackworth, off Prince Charles Avenue, close to the Henley Green Roundabout and Mackworth shopping parade.
The Hall has its own car park. If full, ample street parking is available as is the Community Centre car park.
