We’ve put together this visual story to let you know more little bit more about our Barnfield Theatre before your visit.
If you’d like to pop into the Barnfield before your show and take a look around, we’re open Monday – Friday, from 10am – 4pm, except on bank holidaysGetting to the Barnfield Access & Facilities Our plans for the Barnfield
Entering the Barnfield
You can enter the Barnfield at street level through the automatic doors at the front of the building.
The front entrance leads into the Box Office, break area and theatre café.
You’ll be in our Box Office area as soon as you come through our front doors. Our friendly Box Office team can help you book or pick up your tickets and find where you need to go.
The stairs to the right-hand side of the Box Office front desk lead up to the Barnfield auditorium (30 steps).
Wheelchair access to the Barnfield auditorium is available through the auditorium side doors on the outside of the building, on the right-hand side of our front entrance. There is no lift access to the second floor of the building.
On the left-hand side of our Box Office is a small break area chairs, tables, and lots of children’s books and games.
You can also find male, female and gender-neutral, accessible toilets in the break area. The accessible toilet is spacious and equipped with handrails and an emergency pull cord.
There is also a baby changing station in the gender-neutral, accessible toilets.
One the right-hand side of our Box Office is the Barnfield café, where you can get drinks or snacks during the day or before a show.
This area can get quite busy and noisy before or during shows. If you need a quiet space, during a performance, you can use the bottom floor break area on the left-hand side of the Box Office, or the second-floor space between the auditorium and the auditorium stairs.
The Barnfield has two performance spaces: the auditorium and the Clifford Room.
Your ticket will tell you which performance space, row letter and seat number you need to go to. Stewards will be stationed by each performance space door and can help you find your seat.
When you enter the auditorium, the house lights will be on to help you find your seat. We will dim or switch them off when the performance begins.
There is an access row with removable seating on Row A for wheelchair users and assistance dog users.
We showcase smaller-scale performances in the Clifford Room. We also run a lot of our community engagement activities like our Northcott Young Company in this space.
The Clifford Room has temporary seating for performances and seats can be removed to accommodate wheelchair users in the front rows.
