Exhibitions at the Barn

Relax in the beautiful Suffolk countryside and be inspired by the creations of artists and makers from East Anglia and beyond.

At certain times of the year, Blackthorpe Barn transforms into a captivating art gallery, showcasing the amazing talent of local and regional artists and makers. The 16th century barn makes a wonderful backdrop for these inspirational shows.

Some events are purely for exhibiting the carefully crafted items and other shows welcome sales of the artworks. The immersive experience here at the Barn reflects our dedication to providing a vibrant platform for artistic expression in the heart of Suffolk’s scenic beauty.

While you are here, you are welcome to enjoy the café, shop and the local walks too.

If you would like to hold an event here, please contact us.
