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.

The Fieldgate Centre is run as a charity by Kingsclere Community Association for the benefit of the local community and beyond.

Whether you want to meet new friends, develop new skills, challenge yourself, or have fun with like minded people, we have something for you.  There’s something going on every day of the week: Pilates, Songtree Music, Badminton, Clubbercise, Slimming World, Short Mat Bowls, Ceroc.  Plus, regular NHS clinics, blood donor sessions and social sports groups.

Visit our Events or Classes page for more information.

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 disability access.

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)

KCA is pleased to be able to work with the Blood Donation Scheme to provide a local opportunity for blood donation.  To find out more click here.

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.
