The community hall at Braybrooke Recreation Ground, the Copse Suite at Jocks Lane and the Pavilion at Great Hollands Recreation Ground are available for one-off hires such as weddings, anniversaries, children’s and family birthdays, and other special occasions. They are not available for parties from ages 13 to 21.  Bouncy castles, smoke machines, scooters, bicycles, nerf guns, ball sports, fireworks, and barbeques are not permitted anywhere on the premises.

The premises may be used for private functions only and tickets must not be sold at the door.  Smoking is not permitted in any part of the building.  The hirer may serve alcohol at a private event, however a Temporary Events Licence (TEN) must be obtained from Bracknell Forest Council if alcohol is to be sold (i.e. a mobile bar).  The hirer will be responsible for the sale of intoxicating liquor in respect of consumption on the premises.

Setting up and clearing up must be included in the booking.  Hirers and organisers of events in the premises are responsible for ensuring that the noise levels of their functions is not such as to interfere with, nor to cause inconvenience to, the occupiers of nearby houses and apartments; music must be turned off by 11pm.
