The Cheese and Grain is a not-for-profit, member owned social enterprise and also a registered charity. Its main aim is to promote and boost Frome’s social, cultural and economic life.

The Cheese and Grain has an important role in Frome because we can host meetings, large (up to 500 people in the main hall) and small (up to about 30 people in our mezzanine).

Every year we hold an annual member's meeting (the Annual General Meeting - the AGM). This is the meeting where the membership elects the Board of Trustees. There's plenty of time at the AGM to meet other members.

Box Office

Our Box Office is open Monday – Friday 9am – 8pm and Saturday 8am – 8pm. Sundays we are open during events only.

Holding your own events or performance? It doesn’t matter where; we can sell tickets on your behalf, as we often do for other local venues, and events, including a range of outdoor music festivals. Our website gets over 20,000 site visits a month and so lots of people will see the publicity for your event. Tickets can be bought online, over the phone and in person at our seven-day/seven-evening a week box office.


We are sorry but we cannot refund tickets unless we cancel the show.


Our policy is children over 10 years for our live music events unless specified. We do not allow babes in arms.

Service Charges

To book online or via the box office our charges are £1.50 per ticket.
Ticket Charges Explained

The Cheese & Grain have made a large investment and commitment to providing a ticketing service to ensure we can sell our own tickets and not rely on ticket agencies.

In order to do so we must add the costs of operating a staffed booking service, labour, IT equipment, the commission charges our Spektrix ticket system charge us, software development, card transaction fees, ticket stock and all other costs associated with running a secure and customer centric ticketing service. As such please note that any service charges, fees and delivery charges are not refunded.

If you want your tickets posted the charge is £2.00.
