Coronavirus Advice & Guidance


Following the UK Government announcement to step up measures to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken the decision to temporarily close the Barn from Tuesday 17 March.


This is an unprecedented and fast-moving situation and it is with sadness that we close our venue until further notice for the safety of customers, artists, volunteers and staff.


The Barn is a registered charity, like everyone we are trying to find a way through these incredibly worrying times. While our venue is closed to the public, we are looking at alternative ways in which we can work with those in our industry, support their wellbeing and livelihood and share work with you, our audiences. So please keep an eye on our social media pages and the Barn website.

If you have tickets to an event at the Barn, please consider donating your ticket rather than requesting a refund. This will help to ensure our future in these uncertain times, along with the livelihood of countless artists and makers in our community.


We will be in contact with ticket holders as soon as we can. For the moment, our Box Office team can still be reached by email mail@thebarnarts.co.uk


Please bear with us as we do our best to answer your enquiries as quickly as possible.

Stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you all back to the Barn.
