Exciting upgrades at Bangor Aurora & Queens Leisure Complex!

Jul 24, 2023 | News

Northern Community Leisure Trust have recently completed an exciting development project, which has seen Bangor Aurora and Queens Leisure Complex given a revamp with some new and improved facilities!

The gym at Bangor Aurora was temporarily moved to the Function Room whilst works took place but our swim programme including Aqua Challenge and Leisure Waters were unaffected throughout.

The gym has now added over 30 extra workout stations, along with new equipment from the Life Fitness range. The upgraded gym has also been redecorated and features new flooring providing an improved look and feel. The free weights area has trebled in size and there is brand-new strength and conditioning equipment throughout.

The Aurora has also announced the opening of a Wellness Studio. Formerly a group workout space, the new studio has been redesigned to provide a more calming setting for sessions such as Yoga, Pilates and breathing classes.

The café has also been improved and now offers a wider range of hot food, including Chicago Town pizzas, Polar Krush drinks and snacks along with more seating space to help with the increased footfall.


Queens Leisure Complex has also benefitted from the redevelopment and now features new equipment as well as fresh decoration and specialised equipment in the gym.

Chris Kelly, Contract Manager for Northern Community Leisure Trust said: “The refurbishment of the gym and café at Bangor Aurora has been a major project, but the feedback so far from customers has been excellent, which makes all the hard work worthwhile. Our members have been impressed by the additional space and the new equipment, which is helping add variety to their workouts.

“I am extremely excited about the launch of the new Wellness Studio, which will feature a whole new programme of classes for our members. This will be a space for the mind and the body, providing an oasis of calm in this fast-paced world.

“We will be celebrating the refurbishments for both centres with Open Weekends at the Aurora and Queens on August 12th and 13th. There will be a range of free activities on offer, plus the chance to sample some of the new café menu at the Aurora.

“I would encourage members, past and present, to visit us across those two days to check out how good the facilities look following this upgrade.”
