Bollescroft from side

Bollescroft is a bright, attractive, medium sized venue, centrally located off the A1170 High Street, just 300 yards south of Hoddesdon town centre, off the Spotlight car park. It is owned by Broxbourne Council but leased by Broxbourne Theatre Company (BTC), an amateur musical theatre society, 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 a gate by the wall and down 6 steps. We regret that the access and some aspects of the building may present difficulties for the disabled.

Bollescroft can be booked 7 days a week until 11pm when not in use by BTC. All bookings are administered by BTC. Click on the Bookings Calendar button above to check availability. The calendar only shows the start time of bookings; click on a booking and a window opens, showing the end time.

There are no staff on site. We operate on an honour basis under which you will be given details of how to access the building, set up and clear furniture and leave the building in a tidy condition. If you have any questions, or wish to view the venue, you can contact our Bollescroft Manager, whose details are given below, to arrange an appointment.
