Technical spec

The theatre has a lighting provision with 12 spotlights and a lighting desk. The theatre doesn't have PA equipment as we are yet to find a user who needs amplification. However, we can allow the use of your own, providing adequate PAT testing certification is provided.

The theatre seats 75 due to the nature of the construction of the barn.

Hire the theatre for your show

We host a wide programme of events at the Barn Theatre each year. But if you have a show or performance that you would like to put on at the barn that we feel we can’t promote within our programming, we may be able to hire the barn out to you to hold the event yourself. You must be able to provide adequate public liability insurance. We will provide a duty manager for your event and open the licensed café.
