Tired of quarantine food?
Coming soon: our on-campus restaurant in Malvern, PA has been cooking up a plan for contactless takeout with summer-inspired meals for the whole family. We’re talking crab cakes, veggie-filled salads, and even gourmet waffle fries – all prepared in accordance with strict health and safety protocols.
In February the Farmhouse Bistro hosted a brunch buffet featuring the musical talents of Romona Riscoe Benson and The Aaron Graves Trio.
The Farmhouse Pavilion was hopping with over 80 reservations!

Supporters of the Arts
As a wholly-owned subsidiary of People’s Light, The Farmhouse and Bistro fund artistic work in the community and beyond. Founded in 1974, People’s Light serves as one of Pennsylvania’s largest professional non-profit theatres, known for our resident company of artists, eclectic mix of productions, and innovative work with young people.
In our 8-play season, we present stories drawn from ancient times through tomorrow that have direct relevance to our communities and their concerns. People’s Light makes plays drawn from many sources to entertain, inspire, and engage our community. We extend our mission of making and experiencing theatre through arts education programs that excite curiosity about, and deepen understanding of, the world around us. These plays and programs bring people together and provide opportunities for reflection, discovery, and celebration.
People’s Light has always called Chester County home. In 1979 we moved to our current location in Malvern. The Theatre employs 100 full- and permanent part-time artists and staff members, many of whom live within 15 miles of the campus, and almost 200 guest artists each season from Philadelphia, New York, Washington D.C., and beyond.
