Hillsborough Arena is registered charity which opened in 1998 with the help of lottery funding. We are a community recreational and social centre that is owned, managed and used by the people of the local area.
Developing what was a rundown area with a high crime rate into a safe, attractive and positive environment. Initially the facility was designed for sport and physical activity for the community, including local schools who had limited facilities, but from the outset there was a commitment to support a broader range of community activity.
The venue has undergone many changes during the last few years, not only in its appearance but also in the way that we serve our community. As a charity, we receive no government funding so In order to cover our running costs and make our facility affordable to community groups we subsidise their fees buy hiring out our facility at the weekends for private family parties.
