Frequently asked questions
I am interested in booking one of the facilities at Gladesmore, what do I do?
Please visit our online booking site https://gladesmore.schoolhire.co.uk to send us a message if you have any queries. If you would like to go ahead and make a booking, please select a facility and the desired date.
