Venue Hire

The Barn Theatre, with its unique setting, is used by companies and individuals for a variety of events - from small conferences to wedding parties and even as a film location. The theatre has been hired by performing companies and by some famous names as it is an ideal venue for that all-important ‘try out’. It also presents an ideal venue for company presentations. All hirings are subject to availability.
