BUSINESS owner Rachel Terry, of The Citadel Hall, is proud to announce the launch of three new classes at Chippenham’s most centrally located community venue.
Rachel took over the first floor venue five years ago after failing to find a space for her belly-dancing group the Sahara Sisters. Since then she has gone on to welcome a variety of exercise classes in the main hall as well as offering a second smaller room for meetings, groups and parties.
“The moment I saw The Citadel Hall I knew it would provide the perfect space for locals to come together,” she said.
“I consider myself somewhat privileged to be able to host those of all ages here. Whether they are learning, relaxing, exercising or celebrating it is the ideal venue for a variety of gatherings. There is something for everyone at The Citadel Hall.”
Today many local groups run classes in the hall, families book it for celebrations including birthdays and anniversaries and businesses use it for workshops, small conference or discreet occasions such as interviews. The hall can cater for groups up to 100 people.
Recently three more activities have started on a weekly basis:
· Yogaroo, a form of children’s yoga, is run by Sarah Love. Classes are every Saturday morning 9:00-9:35 for three to seven year olds. Family classes are 9.45-10.20am. Classes are £8 per adult/child and £2 for additional siblings. Anyone interested can call 07725 193271.

The Citadel Hall is located on the first floor of The Citadel Building, on Chippenham’s Bath Road, was built in 1903 and is a former Salvation Army meeting place.
It’s next to the town centre’s Bath Road pay and display car park, where the hall has a loading bay, is a 10-minute walk from the train station and most local bus services stop outside.
