Welcome to The Brig, arguably the best venue in the Altofts and Normanton area for fitness classes, private parties, private and business meetings, weddings and conferences. The Brig is owned and managed by Altofts Community and Sports Foundation (ACSF) Limited a fully registered charity with the aim of promoting and facilitating health, social and community based opportunities for all residents in the wider Altofts area.


This website aims to provide the latest details about future events and details about hiring The Brig and also allows you to check our calendar. For more details about ACSF’s plans to develop the land around St Mary’s Road and The Brig to improve both open community and sports areas click here. We hope that you find this website useful and come along and enjoy one of the many events or classes at The Brig or sign up for membership to enjoy the social aspect.

The bar serves a range of refreshments including lagers, ciders, a weekly real ale, spirits, wines, cocktails and a wide range of specialised gins and tonics. A facility to pay be card is provided. The bar is managed by ACSF Trading Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary company of our charity, who ensure that a social aspect remains at the heart of our enterprise. This is hugely important as that concept fully reflects the history and heritage of the former Working Men’s Club which was established to provide a social heart for the community and provide a base for wider interests.

The Brig is also the base for the following community groups:

– Friends of Altofts Library (FoAL)


– Altofts Juniors AFC


– Normanton Lions

– Castleford Water Polo

– Altofts Cycling Club


Our enterprise and ambitions also have the full support of Wakefield Council who see The Brig as an exemplar in terms of community based enterprise. Council Leader, Peter Box, is a regular visitor.
