Booking

Welcome to our online booking section.

SkillZONE, the only safety centre in Gloucestershire, was officially opened in February 2013. The calendars below indicate available dates for booking your visit. We cater for schools, colleges and organized groups with a maximum of 45 people.

Admission charges

We have tried to keep admission charges low to ensure that the centre is accessible to as many people as possible. However we do need to generate some vital income to pay the cost of volunteer guides and future updates to the scenarios. Admission charges are as follows:
  • £5 for schools per pupil
  • £7.50 for non schools per visitor
We understand that for some schools, parents, carers or groups there may be difficulty in meeting the full cost of a visit, so in some circumstances we may be able to subsidise the cost please contact us. We only cater for organised groups (minimum group size of 5 and maximum of 45) but families or individuals are welcome to attend our public open days. PLEASE NOTE: THE CENTRE IS NOT AVAILABLE TO BOOK AT WEEKENDS BUT IS OPEN FOR SCHOOLS OR ORGANISED GROUPS DURING THE WEEK. We are also open during the school holidays for visits from organised groups.
