Now that Charlbury Community Centre is up and running, this page is aimed at pointing you to sources of information about what is available for you there. Please see our website for details about the Centre and its activities and facilities: https://www.charlburycommunitycentre.org.uk/.
The centre is open every day, including Bank Holidays, so please pop in anytime between 9am and 5pm on weekdays (we are sometimes open later full details on our website) or 9-4pm at weekends and bank holidays to meet people, visit the library, get sporty or just grab a coffee. The library self-issue machine is available all the time that the Community Centre is open, so you can come in at any time to borrow or return books.
Below are some of the activities offered for school children, teenagers and Under 5's and their parents/carers:
Songbirds: Tuesdays 10am. Come along to sing with local musician Jenny Mahler. Jenny has directed,

These sessions are all drop-in sessions, no need to book. For more information please contact the centre or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Open sessions for young people of secondary school age: Fridays 7-9pm. Only £1 per session
Young people can use the sports hall (for the first hour) and the Thomas Gifford Room to meet up with others and chill out in their own space. There is a table tennis table, table football, board games and a large screen TV to show movies and sport. We welcome ideas about what else young people would like to have available for their sessions.Children's Parties
Charlbury Community Centre is a great space to hold children's parties. We can offer, for example, an hour in the sports hall (set up for whichever sport you prefer, supervised by us or by you) followed by an hour in the Thomas Gifford room, where children can have some food, or do quieter activities. You can provide the food yourself. Please contact Daniela: email@example.com for details and to find out about prices and availability.
