Wingfield Barns

Quite simply, a unique venue


Wingfield Barns lies in the Waveney Valley, just inside the Suffolk border with Norfolk.

It is a unique tranquil venue, centring around a beautifully restored timber framed barn, surrounded by studios and galleries.

It is the perfect place for concerts, plays, education and training, and weddings.

For all enquiries ring 01379 384505 or e mail:enquiries@wingfieldbarns.com

Music

Saturday 28th March at 7.30, Richard Digance returns with his own brand of music and conversation. All tickets £15

Richard is a BAFTA Nominated entertainer and a Gold Award recipient from The British Academy of Composers and Songwriters. He is also listed in the Virgin Anthology of Music as an influential writer of comedic songs.

Richard will be touring in 2015 with a new one-man show, new material in the first half and golden oldies to take you back in part two.

Not many guitarists have played a duet with Queen’s Brian May, worked with Steve Martin or performed at The London Palladium with the late Robin Williams, Richard has.

Music Sunday 7th June 7.30pm

Peter Knight’s Gigspanner. Album Launch Tour. It has been a long time in the works, but Gigspanner’s riveting new album ‘Layers of Ages’ sees the band blowing the dust from a collection of well-worn traditional music and songs to reveal authentic moments of staggering originality and great beauty. Hailed by Songlines magazine as “another milestone in folk’s rebirth of cool”, Gigspanner present a carefully curated and skilfully narrated program of material that goes beyond the folk genres boundaries by a long chalk. Modern in interpretation yet classical in its virtuosity, it is music that continues to inspire audiences of all leanings, bringing them back for more. Legendary fiddle player Peter Knight (ex Steeleye Span) is joined by Roger Fleck on Guitar and Vincent Salzfaas on Percussion. “Peter Knight Can Spin the World on His Bow” Sir Terry Pratchett
