The Factory venue lives up to the name as it is situated on an industrial estate on the outskirts of Barnstaple, North Devon. The large airy auditorium has a raw industrial feel as the new music venue is situated within a large warehouse building.
The live music, arts and entertainment venue boasts a spacious main auditorium with a standing capacity of up to 800, complete with large stage, in-house Opus sound system and full lighting rig. The venue can be configured for 300, 500, 800 capacity events.
By day The Factory is an immersive hands on learning space, by night we open our doors to the wider community of North Devon for a range of music events.
As part of Petroc college The Factory provides essential training and work experience opportunity to learners studying Music Technology and Music Performance in rural North Devon. Our learners are able to leave college not only with a qualification but the opportunity to work with national and international touring artists.
