Iwade @ the Barn

Iwade @ the Barn

Registered Charity (1163386)

Iwade @ the Barn is a Grade II listed former agricultural barn which has been converted into a community space available for hire. This cosy space has a main hall of 7m x 4m which is available for community organisations to use as a meeting place and private hires for events such as small parties, gatherings, wakes or an exhibition space. A small kitchen complements the space and a WC with disabled access brings all the facilities that are needed to complete this community hub.

The Barn is currently available for hire to residents of Iwade but for other events please get in touch with the Trust as other bookings will be considered if they bring a benefit to the residents of Iwade. We want the space to be used as much as possible and welcome all ideas.

Check our Calendar to see when the Barn is available if you are interested in booking, then go to How to Book to download a Word or Pdf booking form, the Word document can be completed and emailed or print out the Pdf and drop it into our postbox which is outside the double doors at the Barn.
