You can do almost anything in Alternative Venues Lowlands


Alternative Venues Lowlands is managed by the Lowland Reserves Forces' and Cadets' Association (LRFCA). We look after the interests of Reservists throughout our counties and Metropolitan Districts 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, 3 Cadet Training Centres and over 70 Cadet sites. All of the venues are well maintained, easily accessible and can be utilised for a wide variety of events and activities.
