High Barn Arts CIC was formed in November with the mission to benefit both the arts and community.

Grammy award-winning mix engineer Simon Gogerly, chartered engineer and Research Fellow at the Cultures of The Digital Economy Research Institute (CoDE) at Anglia Ruskin University Dr Rob Toulson, and Great Bardfield parish clerk, Kate Fox have all joined the board to help drive the project forward.

Commenting on their appointment, board member Alistair McMillan said: “We are excited to add the local talent and industry knowledge of these three new members to our board. We are looking forward to their contributions as we continue to provide access to great music and arts, as well as an even greater benefit to our community.”

The organisation has also formed Friends of The High Barn, a volunteer group who have already begun helping out at live events. There is already a group of over 20 volunteers involved who have been helping with our many front of house duties as well as the technical side of things.

The organisation is actively encouraging anyone with an interest in what it does and wants to achieve, to visit for details.
