Saint James Place opened in 2017 as a state-of-the-art cultural center and event space where Berkshire County residents and visitors enjoy year-round music, theater, dance, and other performances along with lectures, classes and meetings. Since opening, over 40 arts groups in need of quality performance, rehearsal and office space have brought their creativity to Saint James Place. All this in a fully air-conditioned and handicap accessible space with perfect acoustics.
Saint James Place is committed to enriching the non-profit landscape in the Berkshires. It is to this end that we built a free and permanent home for the People’s Pantry, which offers a weekly food supplementation to residents of Southern Berkshire County regardless of income and family size. We also provide affordable office space for small non-profit groups and support each of their missions in any way we can.
Saint James Place is a year-round state-of-the-art cultural center in the heart of downtown Great Barrington in the Southern Berkshires. Built in 1857 as an Episcopal church, Saint James Place was lovingly restored and is now an intimate and charming secular space.
