Situated in the heart of Frome, The Bennett Centre is a community venue with several distinctive spaces for hire. Operating as the church hall for St John's Church, The Bennett Centre has been loving restored over several years as funds have allowed. We are very proud of our aim to preserve the heritage of this historical building while enabling it to be used as an accessible space for the communities of Frome. Our work is not finished so if you would like to contribute to the next phase of our restoration, we would be incredibly grateful.
In 1854, William James Early Bennett, the Vicar of Frome Selwood bought some properties on the West side of the old Grammar School site.
The Bennett Centre is currently being refurbished to provide functional spaces of high quality and improved accessibility for the wider Frome community.
"This is an amazing space; what a beautiful ceiling and windows, and great to see the sympathetic works ongoing downstairs." (online reviewer)
