St John's Community Centre

Situated off Church Street, the Community Centre used to be the old St John’s Junior school and is the main building you see when you arrive at the car park. It houses the Council’s administrative offices: the Town Clerk, Assistant Clerk and Financial Officer have offices here.

The Community Centre is also a resource for the community and has six rooms available for hire, ranging from the Main Hall at 142m² down to the small Seminar Room at 36m².

The rooms are used frequently for weddings, fairs, society meetings, and as rehearsal rooms for choirs and dancing school.

The premises can be licensed for alcohol sales if required. Please enquire for further details. The centre also has catering facilities including a fully refurbished kitchen.

For more information please download a booking form (above). Please also note that if you are hiring these facilities, you must also read and agree to comply with the Emergency Procedures and the Conditions of Hire before a contract can be issued.

All of these documents can be downloaded from the links in the panel above .

Resource Centre

The Resource Centre is situated on the same site as the Community Centre and is the modern building below the car park.

Availability of the Centre is limited so please ring us for more information on 01226 370088 or email us.

Penistone Paramount

Penistone Paramount Cinema is part-subsidised by Penistone Town Council. It has proved to be highly successful and popular resource for the community and continues to go from strength to strength, showing recent films and a wide variety of live performances. It is also the home of the Compton Organ, which holds regular recitals.

Further information can be found at the Penistone Paramount website.


Penistone Town Council owns a small number of plots off Wilson Avenue. We also have plots available to lease off Berrywell Avenue.

All allotments are currently allocated but please contact us if you wish to be placed on the waiting list. Please note that this is a very long waiting list and availability is likely to be in terms of years rather than months.

Equipment Bank

The Equipment Bank was set up by the Penistone Round Table with support from the Town Council and funding from EPIP and DEFRA. The equipment is available at low cost to community and charity groups, as well as private, not-for-profit hire across the whole of the Penistone East and West area and surrounding districts.

Portable staging, various sized popup tents, inflatable football challenge, generators, tables, chairs, gas BBQ, water boilers, cooking rings, trailer, steel barriers, various lighting and more.

For all enquiries related to the equipment bank including booking please visit their website.
