In response to the government's guidance, the Compass and Winston Churchill Theatres will no longer be putting on shows until further notice.

We are currently refunding tickets to customers for shows until 30 April. We will contact customers in due course, so it will help if ticketholders don't try to call in. We will contact you.

Please await further news for shows from 1 May.

Some of our room hires will continue as normal, although many are disrupted. Contact your provider for more information in each case.

Compass Kidz is not currently running.

Alternatively, if you don't yet have a booking for the Cow Byre, you can apply for dates from the first Monday in April each year for the following year (i.e. you can apply in April 2014 for dates April 2015-2016). Established hirers are able to apply from February instead.

The Cow Byre is a very affordable and therefore very popular exhibition space, so dates do go very quickly. If you don't yet have a booking please contact us on our bookings line on 01895 277643 (Mon-Fri daytimes) or emailing us on
