Bollescroft from side

Bollescroft is located off the Spotlight car park in Hoddesdon. It is owned by Broxbourne Council but leased by Broxbourne Theatre Company and used as its rehearsal hall and headquarters.

Bollescroft viewed from Car Park

The building is only visible from the car park as a white wall and a roof top. Access is through the gate at the left of the wall and down 6 steps. We regret that the access and some aspects of the building may present difficulties for the disabled.

Previously only bookable up to 6pm, Monday to Friday, through the Spotlight Venue Administrator, Bollescroft can now be booked 7 days a week until 11pm when not in use by BTC. All bookings are now only dealt with by BTC.


The ground floor comprises the main hall and a small meeting room.
