Where we Meet

We usually meet on the first Thursday of the month at Lancing Parish Hall from 7-10pm see our Programme


The hall is in South Street, Lancing, BN15 8AJ and is readily accessed by car from either the A27 or A259, see map

Lancing railway station is just 1/3 mile to the North and bus services run along the A259

From the A27 turn south down Grinstead Lane (A2025). After the railway and Farmers pub, turn right, then immediately left into Chester Avenue to the hall car park. (For the public car park and the front of the hall continue down South Street.)

From the A259 turn north into Elm Grove (opposite the western end of Lancing Green), then right into Chester Avenue to the hall car park. (For the public car park and the front of the hall turn north into South Street opposite the tyre garage.)

There are car parks behind the hall and opposite the front entrance, together with nearby on-street parking

There are some steps to the front of the hall, but the rear entrance is level and can be accessed via a path to the side of the hall

The hall is fully wheelchair accessible from the rear car park off Chester Avenue. The front entrance is stepped, however there is a sloped walkway to the rear of the building which is fully accessible



The main car park for the hall is accessed
from Chester Avenue.

An alternate car park is accessed via a narrow
entrance opposite the hall in South Street, once
you pass through the narrow entrance there is a
reasonably sized public car park.

On-street parking is also available in:
South Street
Penhill Road
