A new small venue for music and theatre rehearsal and performance.
The Piggery is a comfortable modern space created in 2020. The original barn dates back to 1750, and in the 1950’s was converted into a state-of-the-art piggery by Lord Beaverbrook, the newspaper magnate. The venue is located at Hole Farm, an ancient Cornish farmstead dating back to around 1200.
The Piggery has a small kitchen and bathroom, huge bifold doors with beautiful views, and a parlour grand piano. The room has been designed to provide excellent acoustics and light. Measuring approximately 5.5m x 12m metres, it is ideal for chamber music and folk ensembles or theatre research, development and rehearsal. The space accommodates up to 40 audience members. In the summer you can have informal performances with the doors open and audience sitting outside.
An adjacent unconverted barn, The Linhay, is available for interval and pre- and post-concert refreshments, and serves as a dining space for residential groups.
The Piggery is set amongst a small collection of farm buildings including the main family farmhouse. A converted holiday barn and studio provide accommodation for up to 6 people (two double rooms, one twin), with excellent self-catering facilities. A further barn would support indoor camping, and there are outdoor camping spots on the property.
Parking is available next to the venue for up to 6 cars. Unlimited further field parking is located 150 metres away.
