A new Festival Hall Leisure Centre in the heart of the town centre.

We were appointed by Ashfield District Council in 2017 to develop a high quality, sustainable leisure development that promotes healthy living and wellbeing on the existing Festival Hall site. The design moves away from the traditional leisure centre model as it looks to help to regenerate the local community.

The facilities mix has been developed alongside ADC and FMG through extensive engagement and through GT3’s design methodology. The development offers a plethora of new spaces including climbing, adventure play, swimming, a generous fitness suite, and a four court sports hall with multi-purpose uses catered for.

The development will be firmly integrated into the existing site as it seeks to enhance its city centre location. Consideration to the site wide opportunities has been explored including sustainable travel through reduced parking and high quality cycle storage.
