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)
Over the summer we've replaced baked potatoes with home-made vegetarian quiche and salad (£5). And the warm cheese scones with butter (£1.50) are proving very popular too!
A new weekly session aimed at 2-8 year olds starts up at noon on 8th August! There will be a bouncy castle, mini trampoline, parachute and all sorts of play equipment. Pick up a leaflet at the centre. More details here.
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 10th Sept 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.
On Friday 13th September 5-7pm we will be having a birthday party for the Community Centre as it's two years since we opened. There will be live music (Charlbury School Choir plus other musicians) and a barbecue. Please come and help us celebrate.
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.
There will be no quiz in August - too many people are away. The quiz night is back on Wed 25th September, set by Rob Hemingway. The café and bar open at 7.15pm for a prompt start at 7.45pm. Priced only £5 per player. More details here. Many thanks to Gordon Cutting for doing us an excellent quiz in July!
