Originally on the site of Home Farm, one of the only buildings in existence when the site was considered as a possibility upon which to build a university. The Barn was converted to be a space for students to perform, where it was originally home to York University Drama Society (YUDS) before they changed their name to DramaSoc. The Drama Barn has been with the society for over 40 years and has seen hundreds of plays and people come and go through its doors. For years now it has been host to 16 shows in a 10-week term; eight weekend plays and eight Monday night rights-free Open Drama Nights.
