Find us

The theatre is in Handside Lane on the corner of Barn Close, a mile from Junction 4 of the A1(M) and just 10 minutes' walk from Welwyn Garden City town centre and its railway and bus stations.

There is a small car park adjacent to the theatre and ample on-street parking nearby. If you are parking on the street, please be considerate to our neighbours and keep access to their driveways clear.


Inside the Barn

Within the Barn are three spaces used for rehearsals, auditions and other events:

Club Room: The Club Room is just off the foyer. The bar is at one end.

Studio: The entrance to the Studio is in the Club Room, at the far end from the bar, or from outside, opposite the white silo tower.

Room One: Enter via the Stage Door, half-way down the right-hand side of the theatre viewed from Handside Lane. Look for the sign Festival Costumes.

Access for those with restricted mobility

There are two parking bays at the front of the theatre for those with restricted mobility.

There is step-free, level access to the foyer, the front of the auditorium and the top area of the Club Room. However, the main bar is down two steps from the Club Room; this is something we are planning to rectify once funding can be found. There is a unisex disabled toilet accessible from the theatre foyer.

Please advise the Box Office of your disability when you book so we can reserve suitable seating for you.
