The HopBarn centre for music and creative performance, provides a unique residential venue dedicated to the creation, development and performance of new and emerging artistic practice.


Situated in a rural and isolated area of East Nottinghamshire, the venue offers individual artists, groups and companies the opportunity to experiment freely in order to conceive and generate original material and performance ideas.


The venue also programmes regular music events by artists and groups who write, compose and perform their own work.


The long term ambition of The HopBarn is to work with regional and national partners to support and nurture new and emerging artists, groups and companies in the development of their

own creative practice.

Our vision is: to establish a venue that responds to the needs of musicians

and performance artists in order to stimulate new thinking, new ideas and

new aesthetics in music and performance.
