I am new to Exeter having moved from Warwickshire a few months ago. A flyer had been put up in my office for 'Murder on the Nile' which was performing at Barnfield Theatre. I have always been extremely keen on the theatre and decided to book the tickets for myself and my partner, hoping that though it isn't a large... More

This performance of Cinderella was outstanding, probably the most entertaining and funny panto we've seen and we've seen alot! The cast we're all very polished and of a very high standard of acting and singing ability. Much better than some 'supposedly' proffesional productions that cost much more. Lyn Burgoyne did and amazing job of directing this talented cast, please do... More

Went to the Panto - Cinderella - with the family. The theatre is very cosy and no issues with seeing the stage. The cast from ELTC were great - especially the ugly sisters mother! Great price and great audience participation. Not sure about two of the jokes but otherwise very entertaining.

Last night Barnfield Theatre Exeter was an amazing gig we arrived a bit early worrying about the amount of roadworks but had a smooth ride in even managing to park on the road free of charge. Got to theatre about 6.15 and the doors opened at 7.00, spent a lovely time with Jenny and her friend in the bar before... More

Although fairly small, this theatre packs a punch. Situated near the city centre, offering a huge range of entertainment, from pantomimes to folk singers. There's great bar, and a café, handy box office, just inside the door. What ever the event, you'll find a fantastic atmosphere, seats I find are very reasonably priced, and makes for an enjoyable night out... More

Visited this theatre recently, it's quite small and intimate but a lovely venue. Easy to find, easy to access the auditorium whether you can walk or need assistance. Seats comfy, no pillars to get in your view! I have also performed there with a group of singers and it is a surprisingly big space although the dressing rooms are a... More

Very friendly staff. Good bar not overpriced like some theatres, £3.60 for large glass of rose. Not bad at all.

The Barnfield offers great acoustics, and atmosphere - all of the seats have a good view, and it's right in the centre of Exeter. The theatre seems to be widening its coverage of live music - especially singer songwriters. We went to see Show of Hands, who sold out 2 nights, and was an excellent show. Upcoming are people like... More
