Community Halls for Hire

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 15 to 21.  For safety reasons, fireworks, barbeques and bouncy castles are not permitted at these sites.

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. Smoking is not permitted in any part of the building. Halls at Jocks Lane and Braybrooke must be vacated by midnight, 9pm on Sundays.

The 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. The hall is available from 9am daily and must be vacated by 9pm Sunday to Thursday, 10pm on Friday and Saturday.
