The first iteration of the Ballroom as a live music venue occurred sometime in the Mid 1990s. No one can quite remember when it moved from being a café/bar that held the occasional event to a dedicated gig space, but during its early years the Ballroom built up its reputation as a grassroots music venue.

Now, over twenty years later, the Barrel House Ballroom is still an independent, 150-capacity music venue, hosting local, national and international bands and artists, as well as comedy nights, Word Cafes, and a range of other live events.
The venue has also regularly hosted bands and DJs for some of Totnes’ amazing music festivals including Sea Change Festival and Party in the Town.
Based in the heart of Totnes, the venue serves as a creative hub for local artists, working in collaboration with a number of community groups, including Jamming Station, The Word Cafe, Black Bird Collective and Chapter 12 Comedy Club.
One of the primary aims of the Barrel House is to provide opportunities to new and emerging talent and to foster an environment that is open and accessible to all, be it performers or audiences alike.
