The Inchyra Arts Club is a stunning arts venue in a refurbished cattle byre on the Inchyra Estate near Perth. The Arts Club opened in June 2014 and puts on a varied programme of 15-20 shows each year covering music, comedy and theatre.
You don’t have to become a member to come to the Arts Club but we would strongly recommend that you do! Membership is currently FREE and will give you a heads up about forthcoming events, early booking discounts and special members-only events.
The Arts Club is run through Inchyra Events Ltd, which also operates The Byre at Inchyra wedding venue, and is owned and operated by James and Caroline Inchyra. They are delighted to run the Arts Club, which they do purely for the fun of it, and very much hope that it is brings something of value to the local (and seemingly wider!) community.
Home to the Inchyra Arts Club is the stunning Byre at Inchyra, on the Inchyra Estate near Perth, Scotland. Built in 1877 as a cattle steading for the home farm on Inchyra Estate, over the years the building had fallen into dis-use, like so many old agricultural buildings. Neglect and lack of use took its toll and by 2012 the building was really just a glorified storage shed with a leaky roof! But in 2012, what started out as a search for a party venue, turned into a major project to refurbish the Byre and give it a new purpose and a new life.
The Byre’s owners, James and Caroline, Lord and Lady Inchyra, invested significantly in restoring the Byre to its original glory and fitted it out as a state of the art venue. The vaulted timber roofs were reinstated as they would originally have been in 1877. Sprung hard wood floors reclaimed from the Kelvingrove museum in Glasgow was laid throughout. Original doors from the Byre re-used inside the building and every piece of original wood that could be was saved and re-fitted. The result is a uniquely welcoming space that provides an amazing setting for performances from music to theatre, from comedy to opera. Artists and sound engineers alike have commented on the amazing sound quality in the Byre.
The Arts Club can accommodate an audience of 600 people for a standing event, 224 people for cabaret-style events with tabled seating and 445 people for theatre-style seated events.
