The Village in the Heart of the City

As the winter chill gradually fades away and the vibrant colours of spring start to adorn our surroundings, there’s a special place nestled in the heart of the city of Hereford that radiates warmth and community spirit all year round. Welcome to The Left Bank Village, where the buzz of city life harmonises with the serenity of a close-knit village atmosphere.

Embracing Community at The Left Bank Village

Despite the post-festive season lull that often blankets January and February, our village venue remains a hub of activity, offering a diverse array of events and gatherings tailored to enrich the lives of city dwellers seeking connection, wellness and cultural engagement.

Yoga Under the Bridge Room Stars

Every Monday evening, amidst the tranquil ambience of our Bridge Room overlooking the River Terrace, we invite you to embark on a journey of self-discovery and holistic well-being through our rejuvenating yoga classes. Led by the talented instructor Lizzie, these sessions embrace the fundamental principles of yoga, from gentle asanas to stress-releasing techniques and guided meditation. Whether you’re a seasoned yogi or a curious beginner, there’s a place for you in our yoga community.

Join us upstairs in De Koffie Pot for an evening of fun, fitness and fiery salsa beats.

Pub Quiz – A Test of Knowledge and Friendship!

Twice a month, we invite you to put your thinking caps on and join us for our lively pub quiz nights at Floodgates Bar. With quiz master Leo at the helm, it’s an evening filled with laughter, friendly competition and perhaps a pint or two. Gather your friends, brush up on your trivia and prepare for a memorable night out in the heart of the city.

Bumps, Babies and Beyond

For new and expectant parents seeking support and companionship on their parenting journey, our Bumps & Babies group offers a welcoming haven every Wednesday afternoon.
