25 YEARS OF THE BARN

25 YEARS OF THE BARN

Over the last 25 years the Barn has continually improved and developed and thanks to the efforts of the community, we are proud to have grown to become the largest arts venue in Aberdeenshire.

In 2019 we are continuing with an ambitious phase of our charity’s development and work is now underway on a new reception area and foyer to better accommodate audiences at sell-out shows and private hires, and on the development of our adjoining sheds to create a new bespoke retail craft space to support more artists and creative businesses to work on-site, share skills and sell their products.

These improvements will help the Barn increase its profile as a tourist destination, attract new visitors and contribute to Deeside’s year-round cultural offer.

Every year we provide over 100 performances and 200 workshops for audiences of all ages and abilities. However, with funding being tight in the arts sector, we are now appealing to you for help.


We have a fundraising target to raise £25,000 in this, our 25th year to help ensure we can continue providing arts for all for the next 25 years and secure the future of the Barn.

  • £25– everyone who donates £25 will receive 1 x ticket to a celebratory performance at the Barn later this year.
  • £2,500– any business who donates £2,500 will become a silver anniversary sponsor of one of our many programme categories and have their logo included in the programme and on our website.

    Every donation makes a real difference and we thank you as always for your continued support.

    Here’s to the next 25 years!
