Welcome to Website for the ARCA Hall Canterbury

Latest News


It  is with great sadness that we announce the death of Pam Blackman. She passed away peacefully at home on Monday November 23rd. She would have been 95 on December 14th. Pam was one of the founder members of ARCA and an active member of the committee for many years.


At our recent socially distanced committee meeting the potential re-opening of ARCA was discussed. In the near future we shall be able to accommodate small groups with 20 people being the maximum number.

In order for ARCA to be Covid-19 secure on re-opening we will have in place the following practices and processes:

-Only the main hall to be used for meetings: committee room and kitchen unavailable

-A one way system throughout the premises

-Appropriate, clear signage

-Readily accessible sanitising stations

When booking ARCA, hirers will receive a specific Covid-19 risk assessment explaining possible areas  of risk and appropriate actions to be taken.

Please note that there will be no ARCA AGM this year.


Due to the ban on public gatherings of more that two people we have to announce the ARCA hall is now closed for the foreseeable future. Thanks to all our regular hirers and members who have supported us. We look forward to seeing you all again as soon as we are allowed. In the meantime keep healthy. Every best wish from the ARCA committee.


At an extraordinary meeting of the ARCA committee on Monday March 16th it was decided that upcoming ARCA events be cancelled until further notice as a result of the current health situation. Therefore the ARCA dance on Saturday March 21st and the AGM on Friday March 27th will not be taking place.

Some groups/associations with a small number of members may choose to use the ARCA premises and therefore we are ensuring that additional cleaning takes place. We would ask anyone using ARCA to follow current health guidelines as indicated by the Government and the new signage in the entrance area.

Our monthly newsletter will continue in order to update all members with the developing situation. We urge everyone to stay safe and healthy in these difficult times.
