Barnfield Theatre – Plan Your Visit

Welcome to the Barnfield Theatre & Café

We have recently taken over management of the Barnfield Theatre, located in the heart of Exeter’s city centre.

The Barnfield Café and Box Office is open Monday – Friday, from 10am – 4pm and around show times, except on bank holidays. Enjoy a refreshing drink or one of our specialty coffees or teas with a nice piece of handmade cake, supplied by Cocorico and other local businesses.

The Barnfield is easy to reach by public transport or by car.

Northcott Theatre cafe. A black shiny surface. On this surface, (left) a small black chalkboard with a wooden frame. Text on the chalkboard reads: 'Collect your coffee & cake here. Order at the bar.' To the right of the chalkboard, a pint-sized plastic cup. On the cup, the Exeter Northcott Theatre logo in pink. Underneath the logo, text reads 'Help save our planet. Return me to the bar.'

Interval Drinks & Ice Creams


For most performances, you’ll be able to pre-order interval drinks and ice creams. Before a performance, you will receive a text message from ‘ExeTheatres’, which gives you access to an e-copy of your ticket and pre-orders for interval drinks and ice creams.


We’re committed to reducing our environmental footprint where we can. That’s why we have recently started a reusable cup scheme for cold drinks to replace the use of disposable cups at both our venues.

To make sure these cups don’t end up in a landfill anyway, we’re asking for a £1 deposit with your drinks purchase. All you have to do to get your deposit back in full, is to return your cup to the bar.

Thank you for working with us on a more sustainable future!

Access and Facilities

We believe everyone should have the opportunity to experience live theatre. We are striving to make our theatre as accessible as possible and recognise that not all disabilities are visible.

If you have any access needs, please get in touch and we’ll gladly assist.
