Charlbury Community Centre consists of a large sports hall, the town’s public library, a community room (called the Thomas Gifford Room in honour of the man who first set up the charity which owns and runs the centre) and a community café. More information about all of these facilities can be found by clicking on the quick links on the left of this page.
There is free WiFi throughout the building, notepad computers can be borrowed from reception, PCs and a photocopier can be used in the library during its opening hours.
Lockers are available to store your valuables and the building caters for disabled people including wheelchair accessible shower and toilet facilities. Group shower and changing facilities are available in the adjoining pavilion. They need to be booked in advance and incur a small extra charge to cover water heating and cleaning.
The Community Centre adjoins Nine Acres playing field, which has outdoor sporting facilities such as football and rugby pitches, outdoor tennis courts (which can be booked through this website) and a children’s play area.

Don’t take our word for it – this is from a very happy mum:
“Thank you all so much for Ted’s birthday party, the Community Centre is a great location for this kind of event. Jason did a great job of keeping 30 seven-year olds organised playing football. They all had a brilliant time and we’re so lucky to have this facility in Charlbury!”
