Testimonials

I have had a long association with Riverhouse Arts Centre and Susan Segal and it provided me with an invaluable platform for performance when I was starting out. It is so important that places like Riverhouse flourish, to give valuable opportunities for up and coming talent.”

 Nicola Benedetti – Violinist 

 

“Lovely venue! Great for the local arts and community awareness.”

Kate Winslet – Actor

 

One of the best rooms on the circuit! I love coming to the Riverhouse Barn – the audiences are heaps of fun, the staff are levely. It’s a joy to play. Wish I could come more often.”

 Suzi Ruffell – Comedian

 

“One of my favourite gigs in the country. So much fun to play – I imagine it’s fun to go to as well!”

 Josh Widdicombe – Comedian

 “Oh I love that room! Can we do our outside the box tour there?”

Brendon Burns – Comedian  

 “The studio reminds me of a temple – a calm and peaceful atmosphere in which to work. When the doors are open to the courtyard, it brings the outdoors inside.”

“One of the most vibrant, exciting and influential arts venues in the country. The varied programme of performances, exhibitions and workshops is a constant joy and surprise running alongside Riverhouse’s role as a leading developer of arts initiatives and projects engaging communities and individuals and that reach far beyond its walls.”

Peter Allen – Arts Development Officer, Elmbridge Borough Council

 

“I’ve never been involved in anything like this. Never will again. It’s just something else. I’ve been involved in many projects, including work on Buckingham Palace and St James’ Park, but this is the project I want to be remembered for.” Becoming a team member at Riverhouse is a rewarding experience as well as being enjoyable! Many of our key roles such as Box Office Manager and Bar Manager are held by volunteers who have given up days and days of their lives for years to keep Riverhouse running. We are constantly in awe of the dedication of our team. However much time you have, we can find you a role to get involved with your local arts centre. After all, the community is what we’re all about.

Roger Wing – Architect 

 

“The Riverhouse Barn is a really excellent venue; warm-hearted, relaxed and enthusiastically supported by all the staff. And I’ve not even mentioned the cakes.”

Ned Boulting – Sports Broadcaster and Writer

 

“My partner and I have been appearing at The Riverhouse Barn for over 7 years. Why?  Because The Riverhouse Barn attracts a enthusiastic and theatre loving  audience , has an intimate atmosphere ,has an ideal location  AND its own car park!  It is an efficient and well run venue, and is one of the first dates we put in our book every New Year.”

Gordon Peters – Actor

 

“It is quite rare these days to find a performance space which is so perfectly attuned to the intimacy needs for live musical performance.  A historic and inspiring building, an impeccable Steinway, excellent technical facilities, comfortable seating and a cosy bar. The proximity of the river also brings a spiritual dimension to this most special of venues.”
