Since the first day of opening in 1991, the Port Arcades has been wholeheartedly committed to the community of Ellesmere Port. We have consistently offered active support to charitable and voluntary groups within the area with opportunities to make collections or hold displays in the Centre. In addition, goods and services are made available when possible for the support of those who work hard for the community.

If you are seeking temporary space within the Centre for charitable or community activities, please contact Mrs Kerry Cryer on 0151 357 2118 for further information and, if possible and appropriate, the Centre will try to accommodate your organisation. All charitable cash collections that take place in the town centre are separately licensed by the local authority and we will be able to advise further on this when making your enquiry.

To enquire about bookings of mall space for commercial activities, please follow the link on the Commercialisation page.

Please note that the Port Arcades is a non political entity and as such, regrettably we do not offer promotional or display opportunities to political parties or for activities where there is a political element. The Management of the Centre are the final arbiters of determining whether a proposed booking has any political element.
