Welcome to the Kingsclere Community Association and The Fieldgate Centre website.
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. We hope that classes will be starting up again at the Fieldgate Centre following the next planned step in the easing of restrictions from 17th May. We are taking email booking requests now for parties and events from 24th June and the office will re-open to visitors from Monday 4th May. (Please contact us to arrange a visit.)
We look forward to welcoming everyone back!
Easter Fun Trail and Children’s Art Competition winners are announced on our EVENTS page.

We offer a superb main hall, complete with a wood dance floor, sound system and disco lighting, and full length studio mirrors.

Regular clubs and groups meet at the Fieldgate
We are proud to be the home to many local 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 on the right. To find out more about the clubs and sporting events click here.
“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)
Support and volunteer
The Fieldgate Centre is operated by Kingsclere Community Association, a charity run by volunteers. We need your help to make sure the centre continues to be a place that the community can use for a wide range of activities and to run events for the community. If you feel that you can spare a few hours now and again to help with organising events, or with DIY/decorating, please call the office – your help will be worthwhile, appreciated, and you’ll probably enjoy it!
Does your company or the company you work for take part in Employer Supported Volunteering (ESV)? Please contact the office to find out how we can work together to enhance our thriving community centre.
