Riverhouse Barn Arts Centre
Since opening in 1989 Riverhouse has built a reputation as a high-quality arts centre servicing the community. We are proud of that reputation and will continue to build on it in the future.
We provide a year-round programme of events which includes drama, chamber music, traditional and modern jazz, children’s shows, cabaret and art exhibitions. We also offer a variety of classes in arts and crafts for all ages, adults, young people and toddlers.
Over the past 25 years we have played host to great musical talents, from Nicola Benedetti to Barry Douglas, established comedians like Jeremy Hardy, Jenny Eclaire and Dara O’Briain, as well as world-class jazz musicians such as Gwilym Simcock and Chris Garrick.
In the Robert Phillips Gallery we’ve displayed works by many and varied artists, from the famous, such as Matisse and HM Bateman, to emerging artists in all media for whom we have provided a platform and support.
We pride ourselves on a breadth of theatrical and musical performances as well as a comprehensive education programme. We look forward to welcoming new and established talents in the years to come.
