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 350 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 or for more info. For more info about our various spaces.

Making An Entrance: Summer Summit
Milk Presents a weekend long summer camp-style for early career queer artists, an opportunity for a wide group of UK, early career artists to develop intensive and specialised skills.
The HopBarn Centre for Music and Creative Performance is really excited to support Milk Presents with Summit Summit in September 2020. As a venue, The HopBarn can provide a rural retreat to visiting artists and companies, offering an ideal space with on-site accommodation for intense periods of creativity, spawning new ideas and new thinking towards artistic practice. This given opportunity, in supporting Milk Presents with the running of this programme, fulfills the key priorities and ambitions that The HopBarn has in contributing to developing new theatre, music and dance. We are equally excited by the prospect of the intensive workshop weekend being delivered to diverse artists from the LGBTQIA+ community.
