About Farnham Maltings & Farnham 

Farnham Maltings is a historic 18th century brewery consisting of beautiful beamed rooms across which the festival takes place. On a day to day basis the building hosts a range of studios for artists and craftspeople together with six resident theatre and dance companies who produce and tour work regionally, nationally and internationally. The Maltings offers a varied programme including theatre, cinema, craft, music, workshops and more.

Farnham boasts a wealthy tradition in the crafts and has recently been recognised as England’s first Craft Town. The Maltings is a short walk to the New Ashgate Gallery, the Craft Study Centre and UCA Farnham, one of the few universities with a dedicated craft department.  Farnham Maltings is a two minute walk from the town centre, with  Farnham Railway Station only a five minute walk away. Trains run to and from London Waterloo every 30 minutes and the journey from London to Farnham takes under an hour.
