Welcome to the Kingsclere Community Association and The Fieldgate Centre website.
What a fantastic turn-out for the Grand Parade and Jubilee Party at The Fieldgate Centre! This was a tremendous collaborative event, made possible with a grant from the Queen’s Jubilee Fund, through B&DBC, and propelled by the enthusiasm and determined effort of volunteers. A wonderful demonstration of a community pulling together.
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.
Event space and meeting rooms for hire
The facilities here include a superb main hall, complete with a wood dance floor, sound system, disco lighting and full length studio mirrors . Plus a fully equipped kitchen, a licensed bar and social area, and two meeting rooms – all available for hire! The centre is an ideal venue for theatrical productions and concerts, or as a rehearsal space, with its spacious main hall, stage with theatrical lighting and adjacent ‘green room’.
Exclusive hire of the whole centre is available for large community or commercial events and we offer many extras to enhance your occasion. Ample parking (with CCTV) and disabled access.
“The Fieldgate Centre made the Hampshire Branch of the SLCC feel very welcome for our meeting. Social distancing was easy, hand sanitiser was available at all entrances, moving people between rooms was straightforward. The wifi coped with the requirements of our remote attendees and the layout in the room worked for the physical attendees. I can highly recommend the centre as a venue for physical and hybrid meetings. ” Eleanor Greene, Branch Secretary
Outdoor sports facilities include a floodlit rugby pitch, floodlit all weather Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA), football pitch, cricket pitch (all weather wicket and cricket nets). Please book directly with Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council. Click here.

Regular clubs and groups meet at the Fieldgate

“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)
