The Signal Box Community Centre

An accessible community space for South Newtown, Cambridge CB2.

Welcome to The Signal Box


The centre has two rooms for hire, the Eastern Room the Great Western Room

The Great Western room is double height which floods the room with natural light – suitable for art, dance, tai chi, yoga and other exercise classes.

We offer a children’s birthday party package for a set rate.

We have WiFi and a hearing loop in both rooms and a projector screen in the Great Western room. We have a JBL Xtreme 3  Bluetooth speaker which can be used with your phone or our projector if requested. If your laptop doesn’t have an HDMI socket (usually older Macbooks) you will need to bring the correct cable with you. We have a HDMI cable but no alternatives. 

The space is perfect for community or corporate bookings. Despite having no onsite parking we are a short walk from Cambridge Central staion.

We provide free community activities for local children in the summer. In 2022 we organised bushcraft sessions and a boxing club. This summer we hosted three arts and crafts sessions facilitated by local charity Arts and Minds, as well as bushcraft and boxing again.

On Sunday 17th December we have our Christmas event which everyone is welcome to, more details can be found in the What’s On link.

Free table tennis is available on Sunday evenings, numbers are limited.

We have been excited to bring the centre back in use over the last year. Please get in touch if you have any ideas for this amazing accessible space.
