About us

Southampton Life is a community service set up by Christ Church Southampton. We wanted to create a local hub where people could get together and enjoy being part of the Southampton community.

We're based at the Burgess Road Library, a public library near Swaythling, Highfield and Bassett. It’s a multi-purpose centre where we host a range of different events and activities throughout the week. ‘The building is also home to a public library service, which runs 4 days a week. The library is managed by a partnership of the Burgess Road Library Management Team and Southampton City Council.

Whether you’re new to the city or you’ve been around for a while, we hope you’ll feel at home at Southampton Life. There’s something here for everyone, so take a look at our 'What's on' page to find out how you can get involved.
