What to expect from your visit
The Barn is open for various activities and events. Check the What’s On page for upcoming events and opportunities to visit.
Currently, we’re following the latest government guidelines with regards to COVID-19. We are currently contacting all visitors prior to each event to let you know the latest. As a general rule, we are requesting that all adults wear a face mask while indoors and are respectful of social distancing measures.
As a team, we strive to make our events and activities accessible to all. If there is an issue that we haven’t addressed, please contact us so that we can try and come up with practical solutions for improving.
The Barn Site
The Barn site is uneven in places, although there are accessible routes through the site. For events taking place in the main building, there are flat and level routes from the car park to the Main Barn, the downstairs seminar room, and the toilets. For any outdoor events, there is paved access to the outdoor toilet facilities but the rest of the outdoor space is grass.
There is one accessible toilet in the main building, and one as part of the outdoor facilities. There is a hearing loop for events in the Main Barn and in the Cartshed. Assistance dogs are welcome to all events. We are able to provide table service for refreshments, just speak to a member of the team as you arrive.
When booking a ticket to an event, please let us know if you would like to reserve an accessible parking space, and / or a wheelchair space in the audience. If you need a ticket for a personal assistant, please book one ticket for yourself and then contact us. We will then issue a complimentary ticket for your companion to accompany you to provide support you need and additional assistance in the event of an emergency evacuation.
