Well known within Cromer for being an important community hub, Merchants’ Place provides a welcoming space for local groups to meet and socialise. Used for drop in advice sessions, coffee mornings, weekly social groups and regular support groups, we can tailor our rooms to your event.

Community Services

Signposting & Information

We regularly signpost members of the public to advice organisations and will happily refer them to your organisation if appropriate. We have a display stand with leaflets, as well as an information folder with details of regular groups, workshops and services that run in Cromer and the surrounding areas.

Community Display Area

We are also happy to display community posters in our windows and have a large TV placed at the front of the Centre to advertise events at Merchants’ Place.

Social Media

We believe social media is a great way of getting your message ‘out there’ and actively promote community events, especially those which are held at Merchants’ Place.

If you choose to run an event at Merchants’ Place we will use our links to local networks to advertise as widely as possible.
