Leading social enterprise breathes new life into Pyramids Centre
Pyramids Centre in Portsmouth has been revitalised as a thriving events, health and wellbeing centre for the region. In just two years, leisure membership has grown from 500 to more than 3,000, with new swim and health programmes launched to encourage more local people to get active.
Pyramids Centre has changed hands many times since it was built in 1988 and by 2013, although popular, standards had fallen behind similar facilities along the South Coast. A fresh approach and a safe pair of hands were needed to stimulate visitor numbers, attract bigger audiences at events, generate new revenue streams, reduce the dependence on subsidies and prepare for the future as a commercial, self-sustaining business. In Autumn 2013, the contract to manage the centre was awarded to BH Live, a leading social enterprise with a nationally recognised track record of operating leisure centres and event venues to a high standard across the South of England.
