The Poppleton Tithe Barn is available for hire in keeping with our charity aims. These are to preserve the building and make it available to local people for specific events, including charity events.
However, to fund upkeep of Poppleton Tithe Barn we rent it for some commercial use as long as it is within certain parameters. The Barn is very close to residential properties and has no soundproofing so no amplification equipment at all is permitted (see Restrictions for more information).
These are some of the events we have held in the Poppleton Tithe Barn in recent years:
Art exhibitions, club/society meetings, conferences, talks, plays, funeral wakes, celebratory lunches, dinners and wedding breakfasts.
We provide a full range of tables and chairs (see inventory). A small, fully equipped kitchen including tea cups, cutlery, crockery and a water boiler. There is background heating and spot-lighting. Some car parking is available.
In addition to the Barn, hirers can use the adjacent Sensory Garden for quiet contemplation and wedding photographs.
- No amplified sound or music – non-amplified music is allowed subject to certain restrictions
- No children’s parties
- Large celebratory events (i.e. weddings) can only be booked a few times each year
- The Tithe Barn events must end by 11pm.
