The Baptist HallThe Baptist Hall is at the top end of Boutport Street, next to the Baptist Church. This fine, historic building provides a large enough space to accommodate a generous 60 seat studio theatre, big enough for dance and some of the larger-cast extravaganzas.

 

The SouthgateThe Southgate is a fine eatery between High Street and the Square. The 30-seater first-floor venue is an ideal, focussed space for stand-up comedy and intimate drama. Audiences will be encouraged to take up drinks - alcoholic or teas and coffees - from the bar.

 

GuildhallThe Guildhall is one of Barnstaple's most picturesque historic building and has been made available to Fringe TheatreFest thanks to Barnstaple Town Council. This atmospheric venue boasts a large performance area and raked seating that holds 80.

 

St Anne's Arts CentreSt Anne's Arts & Community Centre provides an adaptable 50-seat setting for innovative work. The building itself is well worth a visit, steeped, as it is, in history. The Plough Arts Centre programme St Anne's and they have made the venue available to us.

 

Golden Lion TapThe Golden Lion Tap is an old coaching inn that borders The Square. The management have generously made available the large back room that is well-known in the town as a music venue. This will be configured as a studio/cabaret space with room for 60.
