The Factory venue lives up to the name as it is situated on an industrial estate on the outskirts of Barnstaple, North Devon. The large airy auditorium has a raw industrial feel as The Factory is situated within a large warehouse building.
The live music and arts venue boasts a spacious 800 capacity main auditorium, complete with in-house Nexo sound and full lighting rig.
The Factory is home of Petroc's Music Performance and Music Technology department and provides a unique entertainment and events space to the people of North Devon. It maximises the hands-on approach and training in a professional working environment for all Petroc Creative Industries students.
