We’ve uploaded a number of photos of productions that have rehearsed at St. Barnabas, so you can get a flavour of the space, but recommend that you arrange a visit to see the building for yourself.
- The hourly rate is £27.50
- The daily rate is £110
- The weekly rate is £450.00, which includes use of all rooms from 9:30am to 5:30pm Monday to Friday
We’re prepared to negotiate rates, but St. Barnabas does have its own overheads and needs to ensure that these are covered.
In the colder months there’s also a charge for heating.
The space is frequently used in the evenings (from 6:00pm) and on Saturdays, but if you need these times and can book early enough we may be able to accommodate at an additional cost.
St Barnabas is not available for Sunday bookings.
Jane Preston takes care of all bookings. You can contact Jane at firstname.lastname@example.org.
