Macclesfield’s MAC (Multi Activity Centre) is a great place for kids to let off steam. The centre is run by a community interest company, committed to improving recreational facilities for the young people of Macclesfield and the wider community.

Their main activity is roller-skating, with a comfortable and spacious cafe and community room with new facilities including Table Football and Pool Tables.
