The Factory venue lives up to its name as it is situated within a large warehouse building on an industrial estate on the outskirts of Barnstaple, North Devon. 

The live music and arts venue boasts a large and airy 800-capacity auditorium with a raw industrial feel, complete with in-house Nexo sound and full lighting rig.

The Factory is also home to Petroc's Music Performance and Music Technology department and provides a unique working environment and hands-on opportunity for all Petroc Creative Industries students.

As well as The Factory, other creative resources available at Brannams Campus include Pro Tools HD recording studio and five professional sound proof rehearsal booths.

The Factory presents a unique and contemporary programme of music events, so keep checking back to find out what's on!
