The Corn Exchange
The Corn Exchange is Wallingford’s entertainment venue, located in the Market Place and provides drama, art, music and the latest cinema releases in a friendly, welcoming and relaxed environment.
The Corn Exchange is a Grade II listed building dating from 1856 and is now owned by the Sinodun Players who brought it in 1975 and set about converting it into a 176 seat theatre and cinema. It was officially opened by Sir Peter Hall (the then Director of National Theatre) in 1978.
Dame Agatha Christie, the English crime novelist and playwright and resident of Wallingford was also president of the Sinodun Players from 1951 until 1976. You can find out more about Agatha Christie at the Corn Exchange.
The Corn Exchange famously doubles as the Causton Playhouse in the popular TV series Midsomer Murders. To find out more about Wallingford as a filming location in Midsomer Murders both the Corn Exchange and Wallingford Museum offer an insight as well as our Midsomer Murders Wallingford Trail.
