For our Golden Jubilee NORVIS 50, we move to a lovely new venue:

Barnard Castle School.

Barnard Castle School

The benefits of this new venue include:
• Locations are closer together so we can operate as ‘one course’, with more opportunities for formal and informal activities involving all players.
• No hills! A more accessible and comfortable building, where we can welcome participants with mobility problems and even wheelchairs.
• Beautiful surroundings, lovely gardens, next door to the Bowes Museum (where we expect to have some performances) and plenty of parking.
• Transport available to and from Darlington railway station.

You can see more about the school on the BCS website.

The attractive market town of Barnard Castle in County Durham includes tourist attractions such as the castle remains and the Bowes Museum.
