Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We've taken the decision to close all of our leisure centres, swimming pools, community centres, Turkish Baths, our two museums, the Mercer art gallery and tourist information centres.

This is with effect from end of business tonight (Friday 20 March) and these buildings will remain closed until further notice. The decision is in line with updated government guidance and reflects the need for us to do what we can to encourage greater social isolation in light of the spread of the coronavirus. If you are affected by these closures, there is no need for you to get in touch. If you are a member of our venues, having swimming or diving lessons or other regular activities, your membership will be suspended and you will not be charged for April or May. If you have existing bookings, you'll be contacted over the coming days.


Our Brimhams memberships give you the greatest access to our fitness facilities at the best prices. We don't have long-term contracts or charge a joining fee. The only fee you'll need to pay is a pre-payment to cover the membership fee from the day you enroll to the date of the first collection of your direct debit.

Join today and we will provide you with:

  • a free induction, personal fitness programme and regular reviews
  • unlimited access to all three Brimhams fitness centres with new state of the art Technogym equipment and fitness classes
  • free swimming at our five district swimming pools (restrictions apply)
  • access to our free Brimhams active mobile app which records your workouts, tracks your results and helps you review your progress

Our memberships are collected via direct debit on the 1st of each month, or via three months' advance payment. Call in to our Brimhams fitness centres, read our terms and conditions and complete the enrolment forms and direct debit mandate.

We'll then issue you with a membership card and you're ready to go.

We need one month's notice to cancel your direct debit by completing one of our cancellation forms at our Brimhams fitness centres.
