“Norden Farm never fails to surprise or entertain with so much to offer… The atmosphere is so good... brilliant entertainment on our doorstep” Andrew Scotland (April 17)

Norden Farm’s name comes from the fact it is built on the site of an old dairy farm. The original listed buildings sit alongside award winning architecture. Spaces include the Courtyard Theatre, the Studio theatre, 18th century Long Barn, Gallery, Georgian Farmhouse and Café Bar.

In 2013, funded the Arts Council’s Grants for the Arts, the venue commissioned an outdoor living sculpture by artist Trevor Leat. His willow sculpture ‘Family Circle’ was created from the brief to 'delight and surprise'.

Enjoy a pre show dinner in the Cafe Bar, order interval drinks, drop in for a cappuccino or evening meal. There are free newspapers and WiFi, books to entertain children, comfy sofas and hand crafted furniture. The menu features daily specials, freshly made sandwiches (lunchtime only), main meals, light bites and appetisers. Drinks include local beers, artisan teas, coffees and juices.
