Barn Theatre


Enriching lives with professional theatre in historic Cirencester.


To theatre-lovers of all ages and all backgrounds, The Barn Theatre is the place to share top-class regional theatre and performing arts education. This is because of the fusion of high-profile and new talent, state-of-the-art facilities, the buzzing bars and Téatro Restaurant and Bar – all in the heart of historic Cirencester in the Cotswolds.

We have a vision to be a world-renowned theatre destination, inspiring, challenging and entertaining our audiences. We are a producing house, enriching lives with outstanding theatre, education and culture.

We believe that stories told with wit, flair and passion have the power to change lives.
We will work with everyone to establish a respected professional theatre, in the heart of the Cotswolds. The Barn Theatre will be a place where people from all walks of life can come together to participate in top-class regional theatre and performing arts education.

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 thirty 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, Teatro. 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.
