Sessions will run every second Friday and last Friday of every month from 5.45pm - 7.00pm. 

Booking opens 7 days in advance at 7.00am. 

Numbers attending the sessions will be controlled for a relaxing and enjoyable experience.  Pre-booking is essential. 

Adjustments to these sessions include:

  • Music played at a low volume or turned off
  • Reduced numbers

What is the Buddy Card Scheme?

The Buddy Card Scheme makes it easier for disabled persons to use Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council leisure, arts and community facilities.  The Scheme is available to any adult or child with a disability.

Some people who use our facilities may need a friend or family member to assist them in participating in specific activities - this person is known as their Buddy.  When paying for an activity or visiting a facility the disabled person would make the relevant payment and their Buddy would have free access to accompany and assist. 

To apply for a Buddy Card please download and complete the following application form. Applications can be submitted by emailing or at reception.
