You can do almost anything in Alternative Venues North of England
Alternative Venues North of England is managed by the Reserve Forces and Cadets Association for the North of England. We look after the interests of Reservists throughout the North East and are a non-profit making organisation. The income we derive from letting Army Reserve Centres is re-invested into the Reserve Estate.
We maintain 30 Army Reserve Centres most of which were purpose-built during the 20th Century with some very impressive buildings such as Anzio House, home to the Royal Marines Reserve, or Fernham Barracks both in Newcastle. All the venues are well maintained and easily accessible. We also look after over 100 Cadet sites, some of which can be hired out for smaller meetings for local organisations including charities.
