The HopBarn is a micro residency and we supports Artists and Dance Residencies throughout the year with the aim to offer a very focused and intensive period for any companies to come to work, think, breathe, eat, sleep, explore together away from any distractions.


The HopBarn (our rehearsal and performance space) has onsite accomodation (3 bedrooms, 2 of them ensuite) attached to the creative space to allow 24 hours uninterrupted creative flow. Our rehearsal space is fitted with super warm underfloor heating with plenty of natural light.

Artists also have access to our wildlife consisting of 71 species of birds as well as our kKo research space which houses 386 art books and 157 dance and film dvds collection.

Pickup service is available from Newark Northgate or from Nottingham Train Station to The Hopbarn with prior arrangements.

To check for availability please email us. For more info about our various spaces.
