Past History 1970s

We were known as St Catherines based adjacent to the monastery at Barton during this period and our records start from 1977. We also changed our name to Barton Players at this time and many people still refer to us as such even though we changed our name to Barton Theatre Company in 1989.

We have been Barton Theatre Company longer than we were ever Barton Players but it's funny how people remember us.
