All the available tickets for local residents have now been reserved – we have none left. Apologies to those who could not get any.
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING CHANGES FOR 2021
Booking and payment of approved Wilderness Local Tickets will now be made online through Ticketmaster, our safe and secure official ticket agent.
We appreciate your understanding as we navigate the necessary changes to an online process.
For those of you who still have Wilderness 2020 tickets that you haven’t yet rolled over or had refunded:
If you booked tickets for Wilderness 2020 you need to either roll these over to Wilderness 2021 (5th-8th August) or request to have them refunded. If you missed the previous April 24th deadline, you can still head down to the Charlbury Community Centre on a Saturday between 1 and 4pm (subject to availability) to do this.
Please note this will only occur until all Wilderness 2021 Local Tickets have been registered. At which point the Local Ticketing team will not be processing tickets anymore. So, please get down to The Charlbury Community Centre as early as possible, on a Saturday afternoon, to either roll or refund your 2020 tickets.
For those of you that have already rolled over your Wilderness 2020 tickets:
You will receive an email from our Wilderness Info account within the next week outlining details of how to collect your rolled over tickets. Please check your junk folder for this. If you have not received this email by Sunday 9th May, please email us at email@example.com

You can now book gym appointments (if you are a paid up member) and you use the café and the library when it is open. The under-fives sessions, Maker’s Club, Basketball Club and Youth Club have resumed. The café is now open for table service, some indoor sports have resumed (such as racket sports , walking football and some socially distanced classes). The Friday coffee club hasresumed as well , but you will have to sit in groups of six unless you are outdoors.
Opening hours are as follows:
We rely on fundraising, grants and donations for about 20% of the running costs of the Community Centre. Regular donations are especially valuable, so we have set up a “Friends of Charlbury Community Centre” scheme. Regular donors have their names appear on the display screen in the lobby, so it is good for those who missed out on the “Buy a Brick” scheme, or for people who are generous enough to want to help on a regular basis. For more details or to join please download this form.
If you make purchases from Amazon (bearing in mind that buying local is better of course!), we’d be really grateful if you could do it through Amazon Smile. If you do so the Thomas Gifford Trust will receive 0.5% of the purchase value. You will need to select Thomas Gifford Trust when you choose the above link or click on this Amazon Smile logo. So far we have raised £151.42 through this scheme. Thank you!
This year the Charlbury Community Centre has employed a team of young people, who have undertaken lots of different projects around the town, from building raised beds in people's gardens, to facilitating outdoor and indoor virtual coffee club get-togethers for seniors, and helping with activities for children. This would not have been possible without the financial support of WODC (Community Activities Grant), PF Charitable Trust and local donors. Thank you all very much!
Charlbury Town Council has generousy awarded the Thomas Gifford Trust a grant of £2,500 plus an additional £2,000 to cover some tree surgery work, which a recent survey has revealed needs doing on the Playing Close. As always this money will be used mainly for the maintenance of the Playing Close and also for Community Support and is very gratefully received in these difficult times.
