This grade II listed building was, as you've probably guessed, originally a place where merchants came to buy and sell cereals, but after a spell as a meeting hall it became an arts venue in 1993. It now operates a lively programme of theatre, music, comedy and family events, as well as managing New Greenham Arts, an arts centre based in the former military recreation building at Greenham Common air base.

Newbury station (First Great Western) is a few minutes' walk to the south and the venue is served by the 1, 4, 6, 6A, 8, 101, 102, 104, 105, 107 and N1 buses.

The programme at the Corn Exchange has developed considerably in recent years. We present a mixed programme of theatre, dance, comedy, music, film, family work and outdoor performances to audiences from across the South East. Every year we produce our own pantomime in-house which plays to capacity audiences and we also support a range of artists and companies across all art-forms through commissioning and development opportunities, mentoring and production support in all our spaces. Our emphasis is on presenting great shows and films that audiences really want to come and see. Always high quality, we’re really proud that our attendance figures are growing year on year.
