Shawhead Community Centre

Shawhead Community Centre was built in 1979.  Events which take place in the centre include mother and toddler groups, keep fit classes, music classes, dance classes, union meetings, carpet bowling and Councillor surgeries.

Any type of well-organised social function or community based activity would be welcomed to Shawhead Community Centre.


Shawhead Community Centre has one main hall, which can be adapted to suit the needs of most lets. For the purpose of a sit down meal following on to a dance night the hall can retain a maximum of 100 persons. This capacity applies for a disco event also. There is a stage set at the rear of the main hall.

The lounge is situated to the back of the building and can retain a maximum of 50 persons for a dinner dance or disco. We would recommend that the lesser hall be used for social activity groups such as craft classes or for the purpose of seminars and meetings.

Directly off the main hall there are kitchen facilities of catering standard. There is also a fridge available if required.


Shawhead Community Centre is accessible by public transportation and a bus stop can be found directly outside the centre. For patrons travelling to the venue by car there are car parking spaces at the centre.
