The Songwriting Charity partners with “High Barn Arts CIC”

The Songwriting Charity is really proud to announce it has partnered with the newly formed High Barn Arts CIC. For the past ten years High Barn has built a reputation as a highly respected music venue and has been regarded as a home and seeding ground for creative development in music & performing arts. We want to expand on this reputation and build on our programme of events held at the venue to include all kinds of performing and visual arts.

As High Barn Arts, (HBA), is a community interest company, any profits generated are reinvested right back into the business to provide a greater benefit to the artists who perform here, the audiences who attend events and the community. There are no share holders to take away any profits!

Nathan Timothy, CEO of the Songwriting Charity said, “I’m delighted we are one of the first organisations to partner with HBAs. High Barn has deserved reputation as the country’s best small music venue! We’ll be collaborating on a number of songwriting, creative arts and music projects as part of our push to reach young people in the Eastern region.”

The Songwriting Charity, provide songwriting programmes that enhance and support children’s learning & wellbeing, and will be using the High Barn as a base for their East of England operations. In addition to the work with the Songwriting Charity, HBAs will be providing a space for many other lectures, classes and work shops etc. This will directly contribute towards the future of the venue as well as supporting the community and the arts programme. The already established music, filming and recording aspects of High Barn will be nurtured and progressed within HBA with the aim supporting many more emerging artists.
