Exeter Barnfield Theatre


The main auditorium is fully furnished with stage and lighting equipment; 289 comfortable, tip-up, seats which have been recently reupholstered and in full rake for complete view of the stage from all parts of the theatre. It is also suitable for conferences, lectures and displays as well as stage productions.

The Clifford Room can be used for many different purposes, these include a studio theatre or conference room. The seating is modular and can be raked, and can be arranged for any theatrical requirements (i.e. in the round, traverse etc.). This is a most useful and reasonably priced addition to our facilities and we hope it will be used by all parts of our community.

The bar and cafe are open one hour prior to performances to serve refreshments to patrons.

Most major debit and credit cards accepted.
