The venue

The now legendary Barrel House Ballroom has offered a varied monthly programme of events in Totnes for many years, always with a strong focus on original live music the venue has played host to some of the biggest names in music in its time including Ben Howard, Martin Carthy, Seth Lakeman, Kathryn & Sean Lakeman, Marc O Reilly, Willie and the Bandits, 3 Daft Monkeys, Moriarty, Martin Harley, DJ Maseo (De La Soul), Dizraeli & The Small Gods, Land of The Giants, Ruarri Joseph and Wilfredo... After an extensive refurbishment in 2013 and with the addition of a new fully engineered bespoke d&b sound system the venue aims to continue drawing a strong line up of both local and international acts, as well as attracting more established artists to the stage. 

Listed as BBC Introducing's 'Venue of the Month' in 2014 the Barrel House Ballroom has firmly carved out a spot for itself on the the South West music circuit.
