Catering

In order to manage catering and refreshment requirements the centre café will be open for drinks, sandwiches, baked potatoes and cakes, and we will also have a mobile café outside at the rear of the venue: Rosie’s Brews and Bites.

 The café team are happy to take pre-orders for sandwiches or baked potatoes by midday Thursday 12 October which will ensure you don’t have to queue. You can place your order by emailing: shorehamcentrecafe@gmail.com

There are also cafes in the town if you fancy a wander during the lunch hour.
