A force for good

We are the South Coast’s leading operator of leisure and event venues and a social enterprise that designs and builds engaging experiences to inspire people and enrich lives.

With over 2.5 million visits a year and over £31 million turnover, our organisation is changing lives – placing it at the heart of the UK’s growing social economy. Last year, we hosted 423 shows, sold over half a million cultural, sporting and entertainment tickets, clocked up 1.8 million leisure centre visits and welcomed 88,000 conference and exhibition delegates which contributed over £45 million to the local economy.

It’s about having a vision

We’re driven to do more to support the and improve the quality of people’s lives and to promote health and wellbeing to the whole community. We are a social enterprise meaning that we provide services that generate profits that are re-invested into our social objectives – profit for purpose.

Our mission is;

To encourage inspiration and excellence through market-leading leisure, culture and events by providing a positive experience that enriches lives and improves the wellbeing of people and communities

Every pound counts

By choosing to purchase your leisure membership, event tickets or having a coffee with friends at one of our outlets supports us to do even more. Since 2010, we’ve brought over £250 million to further our three social objectives:

1. Encourage more people to take part in physical activity – by providing leisure facilities to encourage active communities and improve health and wellbeing.
2. Attract bigger entertainment audiences – with a diverse range of cultural and artistic events that appeal to a wide variety of tastes.
3. Deliver economic benefit – by hosting major conferences, exhibitions and events that benefit the local, regional and international economy.
