Venue Information

Venue Description:
The Corn Barn is a beautifully restored barn, full of charm and immense character. It has a high vaulted ceiling, exposing the original oak beams, making a magnificent setting for the opera. It is set in its own south facing courtyard, onto which all windows and doors look out upon and includes a waterwheel. The majority of the barn is 18th century, although there are older and younger parts, due to modern farming techniques the barn became redundant and now serves as a fantastic venue, with a super ambiance, after being renovated in 2010. There is a bar, which has been made from the wood off the farm.
