Community Venues

In 2015 the Town Council undertook a survey of all available Community Spaces with a mission to help promote venues. The venues highlighted below are the primary community venues in Knutsford and at the bottom of this page you can find a list of other venues. The latter generally have less availability or are restricted in some means. If you have an update for this page please e-mail clare.stuart-west@knutsfordtowncouncil.gov.uk

You can download the complete directory listing, featuring the information from the survey, here: Community Venues 2015
