Barnstaple's Fringe Theatre Festival
June 19th-22nd 2014


Queens Theatrestudio@QT and gallery@QT and Room At The Top are all in the Queen's Theatre - where the central box-office is also located.

studio@QT is a reconfiguration of the main auditorium that provides a generous studio theatre. gallery@QT is a reconfiguration of the gallery cafe as an intimate studio theatre. And Room At The Top is an informal 20 seat space at the top of the building.


The Baptist HallThe Baptist Hall is at the top end of Boutport Street, next to the Baptist Church. This fine historical 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.


St Anne's Arts CentreSt Anne's Arts & Community Centre provides an informal 50 seat setting for a number of particularly innovative pieces of work. The building itself is well worth a visit, steeped, as it is, in history. The Centre runs an eclectic year-round arts programme.


Barnstaple LibraryBarnstaple Library is hosting a site-specific performance by The Monday Collective centred on the Children's Library but incorporating the surrounding grassed areas. And two performances of Poetry Ping Pong in the Henry Williamson Room.


Barnstaple MuseumBarnstaple Museum was originally The Athenaeum and was gifted to the town by one of Barnstaple's notable benefactors, William Rock, in 1888. Appropriately this is the venue for a short Victorian drawing-room drama penned by William Rock himself.


Barnstaple Coffee ShopBarnstaple Coffee Shop is where you can enjoy 5 minute 'tasters' of Fringe TheatreFest shows along with your lunch or a good cup of coffee on Wednesday, Thursday & Friday 18th - 20th June. This is a great way to meet performers and audience members and find out in more detail what Fringe TheatreFest has to offer.
