The Witham

County Durham

The Witham is a community venue for theatre, music, art and social events in the centre of Barnard Castle.

Situated in a grand Victorian building, The Witham has, for more than 150 years, been at the heart of Barnard Castle and Teesdale’s cultural life.

The venue’s facilities range from an award-winning café bar to a fully-renovated Victorian music hall and a renovated Georgian building which was formerly a Dispensary and a Mechanics’ Institute.

The Witham’s gallery presents regularly-changing temporary exhibitions, and the gift shop doubles as a visitor information point for the area. At the rear of the building is a large outside seating area in a beautifully kept garden. Fast, free wifi is available throughout, and there is ample parking.
