The Fieldgate Centre: Your community, your place

Tucked away in the village of Kingsclere, nestled at the foot of Watership Down, the Fieldgate Centre is a friendly and welcoming Community Centre for everyone to enjoy.

Whether you want to meet new friends, develop new skills, challenge yourself or have fun with like minded people, we have something for you.

Regular clubs and groups meet at the Fieldgate 

We are proud to be the home to many clubs and groups and we host a busy timetable of activities and classes, both indoors and outdoors, for you to enjoy. You can see what’s going on this month on the calendar to your right.

“What strikes us, as hirers of venues in various locations over the years, is how willing to help and accommodate the team at the Fieldgate Centre are. Always flexible, helpful with a genuine desire for us to be there. We feel like a valuable part of the Centre’s community rather than a ‘bother’ which is how so many venue staff have treated us in the past. It’s a real pleasure to work with the Fieldgate Centre Committee and staff and we hope to do continue to do so for many years.”  (Regular hirer)

Event space, meeting rooms and sports facilities for hire

We offer a superb main hall, complete with a wood dance floor, sound system and disco lighting, full length studio mirrors, a stage and theatrical lighting and a badminton court.  Plus a fully fitted kitchen, a licensed bar and social area and two meeting rooms – all available for hire.   Exclusive hire of the centre is available for events, such as large private celebrations (e.g. wedding reception, company/club annual dinner), conferences, theatrical productions and concerts.  The main hall is also ideal for use as a rehearsal space.  Outdoor sports facilities include a floodlit rugby pitch, football pitch, floodlit netball courts, cricket pitch (all weather wicket), cricket nets and petanque terrain.  Check the “CALENDAR”  or EVENTS above for the latest events!
