About Us

The Leisure Box is Burnley and Pendle’s brand-new community leisure facility, based at the iconic Northlight site in Brierfield.

Operated by Burnley FC in the Community (Burnley FC’s official charity), we have transformed the old warehouse section of the former Brierfield cotton mill into a state of the art, 133,000 square foot leisure facility.

Friendly, fun and affordable, The Leisure Box is a place for everyone in communities living across East Lancashire to enjoy and benefit from. We also deliver a number of free activities.

The Leisure Box is award-winning and has been recognised on both a regional and international scale…
