church of King Charles the Martyr is a grade 1 listed building in the centre of town. It offers a unique venue for concerts, particularly because of its excellent acoustics, perfectly suited for chamber music.
The church is by the Pantiles on London Road, a short walk from the town's railway station. See the map on the church's website. Postcode TN1 1YX.
Street parking nearby is usually possible but can be difficult. Please arrive in good time in case the nearest spaces are taken. The town council is also proposing to impose residents-only restrictions in future so please always check parking notices.
Nearby car parks include:
Torrington car park TN1 1DJ
Linden Park TN2 5QL
The only WC is situated through the vestry, but as this is generally used as a green room for performers we cannot make it available to audience members. Whenever possible, (depending on other events taking place) the WCs are made available in the nearby Church Hall but this is not guaranteed.
Audiences may sit in the body of the church or in balconies on either side. At the back of the balconies there is little or no view of the 'stage' area, but the sound is equally good throughout the building.
Seating is on pews; some members of the audience like to bring a cushion!
