Our Venues

Every semester, Mermaids put up shows across three different venues in St Andrews. These are The Byre Main Stage, The Stage in the Union and the Barron (at the Byre) in the top studio of the Byre. Depending on cast sizes, budget and set, your show might work better in one venue than the other. To propose a show, you must specify which venue to wish to propose for, and to help you make that decision, we have gathered these venue details below. Please do reach out or talk to us in our office hours if you have any questions about what venue to choose. Do not contact any of the venues directly, we will organize the venue booking for you if your show gets passed after your proposal.
