  • Great wee gallery, cafe, show venue, shop and training rooms all in the mix of new, old architecture and interior design. It host all sorts live music, comedy, plays, movies and regularly holds indoor markets pedaling high quality hand crafted goods primarily from the local area supporting local artists and skilled crafters. Its a great place that's worth a visit if you are every in Barnard Castle even if only for a cuppa in its bright and airy cafe, hosted by lovely friendly staff, a great wee venue. Definate recommendation.
  • Was at the Witham last night to see The Oyster Band . What a wonderful concert. Both My Husband and My Niece also thoroughly enjoyed it. Please invite them back again. The Witham is a great place to visit with such a wide spectrum of music, dance, comedy arts etc. My Husband and I often pop in to the cafe for a coffee and snack when We are in town and it is well worth a visit
  • Brings culture to Teesdale. Great Comedy plus live theatre, dance and film screenings. We're really lucky to have it in Barnard Castle.
  • This is a small venue with big aspirations. Lovingly refurbished, its seen some big names turning up to perform.
  • Lovely venue. A real gem.
