Westben’s primary venue, The Barn is located three kilometres north-west of Campbellford, on gently rolling farmland previously owned by three generations of the West family. Purchased by the Bennett family in the 1960’s, the area was dubbed “Westben”. Westben’s co-founders, Donna Bennett & Brian Finley built The Barn in 2000 with the help of the community. The Westben Board of Directors formed in 1999 and received charitable status in the year 2000. As its primary series, Westben presents Concerts at The Barn every summer from early June throughout August. This eight week festival presents music ranging from Bach to Broadway, World and Jazz. Other colourful events include musical wine-tasting and Viennese balls. At Christmas, The Barn presents a seasonal celebration to warm the heart! In addition, Westben’s year-round activities include educational initiatives such as in-school presentations, master classes and the 45-member Westben Festival Chorus, which performs at various venues throughout the year.
