Corporate Venue Hire

Nestling at the foot of the Wittenham Clumps, Fison Barn is a nineteenth century barn, set amidst 700 acres of stunning countryside conveniently located, just 11 miles from Oxford and 18 miles from Reading.

Fison Barn is a perfect venue for corporate events or staff away days – offering flexible areas and break-out space.

There is also the option to add on an outdoor activity to your visit, led by one of our Environmental Education Team. These are great for team building. Activities can include things such as campfire cooking and wood carving, but are dependent on the time of year and staff availability. Please let us know if you are interested in including this in your day.

Please note that due to development work taking place at the Earth Trust Centre, Fison Barn has limited availability for private hire during 2021. Please get in touch with us to discuss your requirements. 

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do

Our eco-friendly biomass boiler provides under floor heating during winter for all our buildings. We harvest rain water for our toilets and our solar panels generate greenhouse-free electricity to meet a substantial portion of our electricity requirements.

Surrounded by nature and only 11 miles from Oxford

The large barn doors open onto our tranquil courtyard where bats and swallows have made their homes in the barn eaves, red kites swoop overhead and there are floral displays of herbs and plants attracting butterflies and insects. This courtyard area provides an ideal extension for events in good weather.

What others say…

“A huge thank you to both of you and also to Hannah and Em for making yesterday such a great success. Yesterday was our 20th Practice Day and without a doubt was one of the easiest to plan and organise and that was due to your team’s attention to detail and commitment.

We were all very impressed with not only the venue but the great work you do at the Earth Trust. I for one will be letting my friends know all about the Trust and what you have to offer as I am sure will many of our team.”
