There are many other venues for hire in Charlbury, so there should be no problem finding a room or building to suit every need. Below are links to some of them, but please see charlbury.info for more information about what is available and what is happening in the town generally.
The Memorial Hall is large hall with two small side rooms, one suitable for studio sports such as dance and yoga. There is a large and well equipped kitchen. The hall has a stage, PA system, grand piano, badminton court and is perfect for hosting events and parties.
The Corner House has many meeting rooms of various sizes for hire.
The Church is suitable for larger groups (chairs rather than pews) and there is a bright room at the side overlooking the garden that would be suitable for smaller groups. There are excellent kitchen and toilet facilities. There is disabled access to the building.
Our rooms are available for hire. Apart from the church itself, we have a large upstairs hall with a kitchen at one end, and two small rooms downstairs, one of these also has a kitchen. There is a loop system in the church. Enquiries to Mrs Celia Faulkner on 810656.
Our lift facility is now available, so we are able to accommodate those who can’t manage the stairs.
The Friends’ Meeting House can be hired for a wide variety of meetings or events. For more information see Hire_the_Meeting_House
(Some of these may have rooms for hire e.g. Cricket Club, Bowls Club)
( Sports clubs are also referred to on the page relating to the relevant sport)
Do you enjoy a game of Scrabble? Would you like some new people to play with? We have an afternoon once a month where people can come and play. The next session is on Tuesday 12th Nov 2.30-5pm. Cost only £2. In the meantime there are two Scrabble sets at the Centre, which you can use at any time for a game with friends.
Congratulations to Anna Cherry, who recently won gold medal in the English Open Pickleball championships in Nottingham, over 50s category - (though dare I say she could have been entered in a higher age group!) Anna said: "This win was only possible because [a] Charlbury Community Centre was built, [b] Vijay started the Pickleball sessions and [c] many people give their time to help run the centre!" Like most of us she had never heard of Pickleball a couple of years ago, but it's a great game for people of all abilities and ages. If you fancy giving it a go, find out more here. We are very proud of our champion!
There will be a series of 3 talks on Tuesdays 22 & 29th Oct and 5th Nov 2-4pm by Juliet Heslewood entitled "Gauguin - An Adventurous Life". Click here for more details. These talks were very popular last year. Don't miss them!
The gym now opens at 8.30am, rather than 9am on weekdays. The rest of the centre won't be open until 9am. Remember also that on Wednesday mornings there is a class in the gym between 9 and10am, so it's best to avoid that time. Weekend opening remains 9am-1pm. Thanks to our staff (espeically Jenny and Jason) for getting in extra early to do this - it takes quite a while to get the gym set up.
We'd love to reunite you with your possessions! Most items will be kept for 14 days. Valuables such as watches, jewellery and expensive sports equipment will be kept for 28 days. Each Wednesday between 1 - 5pm unclaimed items will be displayed in the centre and can be purchased for a nominal amount. After this, they will be given to charity.
The next monthly quiz night is on Wed 23rd October, set by Clive Gibson-Leitch. The café and bar open at 7.15pm for a prompt start at 7.45pm. Price £5 per player. More details here. Many thanks to Rob Hemingway for doing us an excellent quiz in September!
