We’re a young charity based in the former Margate synagogue, in the heart of Cliftonville West, Kent. Our vision is to celebrate Cliftonville as a vibrant and diverse neighbourhood by providing an accessible space which welcomes, includes and brings together its many different communities. We have already had considerable success and impact in bringing together these different communities, promoting understanding and appreciation of each other’s cultures through the events we’ve programmed and our work we do in the local community. But we have plans to do even more!


We have an exciting roster of activities, ranging from arts and cultural performances at the weekends (such as theatre, dance and music) through to community engagement activities during the week (such as work with local schools and hosting a Citizens Advice drop-in) as well as hosting a range of low cost activities for our local community (such as yoga classes and choir rehearsals).
