At the heart of the community since 1974, the  Allendale Community Centre needs your  support now to ensure we can get back on our feet and be there to help the rest of the community get back on theirs.  

Please visit our fundraising page for more information on how you can support the Allendale Centre. 


The Allendale Community Centre is currently CLOSED to the public.

We are now able to reopen the bookstall at the front of the building between 9am and 5pm each day if you would like some new reading material.  The books are free but donations are always very welcome.  If you have any books that you would like to donate, please do bring them round and pop themon or by the book stall (between 9am and 5pm only please).

Cafe @ the Allendale is now OPEN for drinks and snacks with a wonderful outside seating area next to the river.  For more information please see the Wimborne Folk Festival Facebook page.

We are pleased to welcome Linda, our Senior Customer Services Officer, back from furlough as we begin working towards reopening the centre when possible.

For all enquiries regarding bookings please contact Linda at 

info@theallendale.org or on 01202 887247.


 We hope to reschedule as many shows and events as possible for later in the year, and regular activities will resume when possible - all subject to observing the latest government guidelines.

Thank you all for your understanding during this difficult time.  We very much look forward to welcoming you back to the Allendale soon - until then, take care and stay safe.
