Leatherhead Community Association


The Letherhead Institute (note the old spelling) was built in 1892 by local benefactor Abraham Dixon of Cherkley Court. Abraham gave the Institute to the people of Leatherhead to provide them with educational, social and recreational facilities. 

Based in the Letherhead Institute at 67 High Street, Leatherhead, the Leatherhead Community Association (LCA) is a registered charity that was established in 1977 with the objective of continuing to fulfil Abraham Dixon's vision of providing educational, social and recreational facilities for local people.



Educational classes continue into the summer term 2016 here at the Leatherhead Institute. Tutors are running French, Spanish, Italian, ESOL, History, Art History and many more classes, so please see our 'What's on at The LCA' web page for a full list.
