Bartons - Events Venue

To see all of this year's events visit our Forthcoming events page - click here

Struggling to find us? can't get to our car park? all roads blocked or shut down?
Access to the venue is best achieved from Queens Road West (A6005) and Barton Way.

Follow the 'red road' marked on the map - it will bring you to the car park. The venue is at the top of Holly Lane where it meets High Road, taxis could drop off here if necessary, right outside.

Look out for the right turn bollards in the middle of the road at the end of Barton Way. The fencing has a number of temporary signs attached to it and is signposted (with yellow metal signs) 'Access to Holly Lane and Car Park'

As a venue for Modern Art Exhibitions to Vintage Vehicle Shows; from Concerts and Festivals (like Oxjam) to Comedy Nights; from Indoor Markets to Corporate Promotional Events Bartons in Chilwell Nottingham has some of the most flexible and unique spaces available in the East Midlands.

Follow your noses


Besides me as I write is the rather generous, gold, long service award given to my grandfather, Mr Carl Barton, on the occasion of his completing a half of century (he eventually racked up an incredible 73 years as an employee!) of service to our old family firm, now known simply as 'Bartons'. It was, as most people always say, the bus company. We have not been a bus company now for exactly 25 years. (Continued from our magazine)

The Garage', 'Docking Shop' and 'Engine Shop'

In recent years the names of 'The Garage', 'Docking Shop' and 'Engine Shop' have tripped off people's tongues in relation to ever more unusual events we have been hosting, with not a single comment to me as yet about the strangeness of these words and names. Read More.
