Community Halls for Hire

They are not available for parties from ages 15 to 21.

The premises may be used for private functions only. Tickets must not be sold at the door, alcohol may be sold if the hirer applies for a temporary events notice (TEN) from Bracknell Forest Council.

Halls at Jocks Lane and Braybrooke must be vacated by midnight, 9pm on Sundays.

Our fully accessible pavilion at Great Hollands is available to hire for funeral wakes, with catering provided on request.  Holding up to 80 people with separate kitchen facilities and plenty of car parking, it is situated opposite the Easthampstead Crematorium.  Please call us on 01344 420079 for availability and quote for catering requirements.  Hall is available from 8am daily and must be vacated by 10pm, 9pm on Sundays.
