Wickham Community Centre

Wickham Community Centre throws the doors open for a different kind of venue – one that’s accommodating, flexible and affordable. Whilst it’s very much a hub of the community in this part of Hampshire it’s also used regularly for business meetings, product launches, awards ceremonies, team building days, workshops, exhibitions, networking receptions, conferences, formal dinners, training sessions and seminars. That in-built flexibility, along with capacity for up to 480 people also makes it a choice venue for weddings, parties and celebrations.

This place really is a gem! A quiet village setting and 7 rooms that can be hired for business meetings and events, with the biggest, the main hall holding up to 480 people for a reception, 400 in theatre style, 300 dining, and 200 for a dinner-dance. The Woodford Suite has a well-equipped bar and accommodates 100 guests, as does the aptly named Long Room – as it’s home to the local rifle club it’s soundproofed which makes it a good option for parties. The Houghton Room seats up to 100 people in theatre style, and the slightly smaller L-shaped Meon Room holds 60; doors connect to the Victory Room which can be hired if you need more space. On its own The Victory Room is perfect for smaller meetings and interviews, with capacity for 12 delegates in boardroom style. Last but not least is the Wickham Room which holds 40 but connects to the main hall so it’s often booked in conjunction with bigger events. Doors open onto a small garden and there’s a kitchen next door with a serving hatch, so this room is ideal for refreshments and breakouts.

There’s a lot more to Wickham Community Centre than you’d expect - loading access to the main hall, a well-equipped kitchen, and the option of the permanent bar in the Woodford Suite or a mobile bar in any room. Your event can be tailored to your requirements; choose your room, dress it, theme it, put some twinkly lights up, make it yours. You’ll have high speed wifi and basic AV equipment, you can bring in your own catering or the venue can arrange buffet lunches and working breakfasts in-house, and they work with official partners who can do anything from champagne and canapes to three course dinners.

Wickham Community Centre has free parking for around 100 cars and is within easy reach of the M27 (J9).
