Exciting News – ‘Friends of Barnabas’ launching soon

Merry Christmas to all patrons, old & new. 

We have some exciting news for you. We are launching ‘Friends of Barnabas’.

Barnabas Arts House has been up and running for 8 years and during that time it has grown from an unknown refurbished building to a multi-purpose, exciting, ambitious space. Equipped with a fine art gallery, Victorian stage and cafe, its studios are also the home of several businesses and creative ventures.

Barnabas is the brain child of Jan Martin and together with a dedicated team of helpers and volunteers it continues to flourish.

2018 is going to bring to BAH even more exciting facilities. A ceramic studio complete with kilns and a tutor will be installed in the Barnabas back yard. Vintage teas will become a regular feature as will live entertain in the basement. Life drawing classes will be available, as will mindfulness meditation, creative writing and book club.

The gallery exhibition program will be innovative and there are many other creative ideas in the pipeline.

Barnabas Arts House needs you to show that you care! Friends of Barnabas will be launched in January.
