Our History – Driven by a deep passion for theatre, Ian Carling and his wife Chrissie have pioneered a bold theatrical legacy for Cirencester. Community and youth theatre have thrived at the venue for over 30 years, but now this site has been taken to a new level. The former 1940s Nissen hut has been transformed into a beautiful, state-of-the-art, air-conditioned auditorium for 200 theatre-lovers. With a studio rehearsal suite, dressing rooms, a green room and an orchestra pit, audiences will experience entertainment that competes with the West End.
Right next door to the theatre, through an archway behind Ingleside House you will find the new, highly acclaimed 60-seat restaurant and piano bar, Téatro. With a car park just across the road, dinner and a show never got easier.
The Barn Theatre Project is a registered charity. We are now working with individuals, businesses, trusts and grant-giving bodies to ensure that the theatre is thriving for years to come.
