Lolworth Barn

Hill Farm
Huntingdon Road
CB23 8DP

Lolworth Barn is a set storage facility with space for set building and painting, in some barns at Hill Farm, Lolworth. The barns are rented by Bawds and Combined Actors of Cambridge, and if you're building set for one of their shows, you'll be able to use the space for free. There may be a small hire charge if you want to build set for another group, and this may be dependent on the time and space required by Bawds and Combined Actors of Cambridge.

There are a large number of stock flats (of varying quality), and also a furniture and an extensive props store. Subject to availability, Bawds and Combined are happy to lend out items (scenery, furniture and props) to other local groups in return for a donation appropriate to the group and the show.   

The barn has space to work on large pieces of scenery, but is only equipped with a small selection of hand tools. Electricity is available if you want to take your own power tools. The barn can get super cold in winter, so it advisable to wrap up well if visiting. The barn does has a kettle for hot drinks, but no other food or drink preparation facilities.

Since the A14 upgrade has been completed, access to the barn is a lot easier and safer, and there is now access by bike or on foot. The closest you can get by bus is Bar Hill, 2 miles away on surfaced paths. Hill Farm is off the A1307, parallel to the A14, between Bar Hill and Swavesey. Turn towards Lolworth but as you start going uphill onto the bridge, turn left (Hill Farm Cottages) and then right onto Hill Farm's private road. Watch out for the speed bumps.
