We are a registered charity and the Community Centre for the market town of Ringwood – over 150 clubs, societies and organisations regularly meet in our various halls and rooms. There is something for everyone!  

Although Greyfriars has been established a long time, we are also planning ahead to meet future needs in Ringwood and a major current project is to build a new Arts Centre – actually on the Greyfriars site.  To read more about this, please see the item and linked page immediately below.

Some of our activities are welfare based, aimed at helping people in the community who need support – this includes offering a minibus service and a Good Neighbours Scheme.

Greyfriars can also satisfy your special needs – e.g. providing a small meeting room, a hall that accommodates 150 for a function – or something in between.  

Our 3 halls have well equipped kitchens attached, so that if you wish, you can manage your own catering.  You may bring your own alcohol, however if you wish to sell your drinks then you will be required to purchase a licence from the Greyfriars Managers. 

We have 8 smaller rooms of various sizes.

When you make a booking with us you are also supporting our work in serving the local Ringwood community.  Please see the foot of this page on how to make contact for bookings and enquiries.

New Arts Centre

Looking to the future, we have an exciting plan for a new Arts Centre at Greyfriars. This will meet a significant community need and is a joint project with Ringwood Musical and Dramatic Society (RMDS).  Planning permission has been granted and fund raising is well under way.  More information through the link below:-

You will find there is a friendly welcome if you call in - and the office is open daily and Saturday mornings. If you prefer to ring, the number is 01425 472 613 and email: ringwoodca@lineone.net

When you email about hiring a room or hall, please try and give as much information as you can on your needs - e.g. type of booking (such as meeting  or celebration), possible dates and times, numbers expected, any catering plans etc. That will enable the managers Mimi & Anne to help you quickly and with the very  best information.  As mentioned above, we have 3 halls and 8 rooms of varying sizes, so we can meet most requirements.
