Friday 31st January – Saturday 1st February

You know what they say, the best things in life are free! That’s why every January we hold our annual Bluecoats Live Open Weekend to allow members and the public to try out our facilities completely free of charge.

What is the Bluecoats Live Open Weekend?

We open our doors so you can try out our state of the art facilities, including our squash courts, swimming pool & sauna, as well as some of your favourite classes including Les Mills Body Combat, Les Mills Body Pump, Dance Fusion, Step, Yoga, TRX, Kettlebells and Indoor Cycling, without paying a penny.

Our gym will be open for business as well as our outdoor gym, The Fitness Yard. If you haven’t been to the Fitness Yard yet, you are missing out! The fitness team will be running their Move It and Battle Fit boutique sessions.

The best part of our Open Weekend is the atmosphere. Usually the whole family joins in as there will be something for everyone! Our swimming pool will be open at various times throughout the weekend for a swim, including Fun Splash on Saturday 4pm-5pm. We will be running Squash Taster Sessions for juniors and adults, as well as our Kids Corner will once again be open with a bouncy castle, crafts, face painting and more to keep your kids busy. For the little ones our Crèche will be open on Saturday from 8:30-13:00.

Of course, if you enjoy your experience at Bluecoat Sports Health and Fitness Club, we’d love to welcome you into the family and can offer a number of competitive membership options to suit your interests and budget.

If you sign up during our open weekend you can get four months for the price of three! Plus, pay no joining fee!
