Community Coffee Lounge

Hermitage FM is the only community radio station in the UK to operate a Community Coffee Lounge. This not-for-profit community project partly funds the radio station, so every cup of our high-quality Italian coffee you drink helps keep your local community radio station on air!  It is a unique space in the area and a real hive of activity in the community.  We are located just below our broadcast studios at Memorial Square (next to The Clock Tower in Coalville).


We serve a range of hot and cold drinks, delicious cakes, snacks and light lunches.


Everyone is welcome to come and have a coffee and a chat! Keep an eye on the Hermitage FM News page and social media to hear about the various activities and events happening in the Coffee Lounge, from live music to language classes!

Opening Times

Weekdays: 9-5, Saturdays: 9-4.                                

Training and Work Experience

We are staffed by volunteers, working alongside local community groups to provide young people, adults with learning disabilities and unemployed people with basic catering training, work experience and voluntary placements. The Community Coffee Lounge is at the heart of our community and participants benefit from our strong links with other local organisations and employers.

Participants will:

  • Learn basic catering and food preparation skills.
  • Build confidence and self esteem.
  • Experience working as part of a team.
  • Get relevant work experience in the catering/customer service industry.
  • Improve their CV and get good, relevant references for work.
  • Be part of a friendly, exciting project that benefits the whole community.
