Your Community Event, Your Way

It really made such a difference to feel that we were being looked after and to be given the confidence that everything was under control – nothing seemed too much trouble for anyone and it made our experience all the more enjoyable.

South Hill Park Arts Centre has a number of spaces for hire that are perfect for community groups and productions. Whether you are seeking somewhere to host a weekly group, looking for a rehearsal space or want a venue for your community production, we have the perfect space for you.

Our mansion rooms and Bracknell Gallery are ideal for weekly group practices, and already well used by community arts groups including SOTA, Berkshire ARTs Academy and our very own South Hill Park Presents community theatre group.

Our 325 seat Wilde Theatre and more intimate 50 seat Studio Theatre are well equipped and extremely popular with local performance groups including Park Opera, EBOS and the Lynette Stephenson Academy of Dance who hire them for their regular public performances.
