Music and Theatre in Bucks County
The relatively short drive from Bucks County to New York City has inspired many creative minds in show business to settle here over the years. This in turn has made the area between Doylestown and New Hope a hotbed for music, theater and other live entertainment - a perfect complement to the relaxed pastoral atmosphere of our New Hope inn. There are several theaters and live music venues you can choose from for a night of entertainment during your stay at The Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm!
At less than 15 minutes by car, Bucks County Playhouse is one of the closest Bucks County theater experiences. This historic theater has hosted names like Liza Minelli, George C. Scott and Grace Kelly since 1939. Flamboyant productions, local premieres, the Bridge Street Concert Series and special events on holidays like St. Patrick's are all a part of their year-round schedule. Look for upcoming Free Movie Fridays and explore the theater's history on a guided tour!
Bucks County Performing Arts Center also presents an eclectic mix of performers in Yardley - just half an hour from the inn. Past years have featured everything from jazz and blues bands to Spanish dancing, music for kids and family-friendly variety shows. Although they hold fewer events per year, a show from Bucks County Choral Society is not to be missed. 86 West also presents live music every night at their downtown nightclub in Doylestown.
The complete list of theaters in Bucks County also includes the Newtown Arts Company, Bristol Riverside Theatre and Sellersville Theater, each named for the towns they're located in. Doylestown is also home to Town and Country Players and County Theater. You'll soon find it's easy to discover live entertainment during your stay with The Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm!
