I'd planned to do just that - using some sort of insulated
plasterboard - once the structure was fixed (roof included) - and
electric, water and gas had been bought in. I keep hearing people
talk about Celotex - am I correct in thinking this could be used to
line the brick walls.....?
Yes. A barn is a large and expensive area to heat. You have the advantage
of being able to have thick walls without any hindrance to the living area,
and pack in insulation. Insert studs and have plasterboard over and pack
between the studs and wall the insulation.

Have a look on their web site, Simon.
There are some application notes which describe the different
scenarios of use and exactly which material and the fixing method.
I used some with timber studding to line my single brick workshop as
well as to insulate the roof. The results in terms of heat
requirement are exactly as calculated.
This is a BCO discussion though, because there may be specific
construction and ventilation requirements.
It's more than our 70 year old house has. You need to assess whether
there's been any movement recently. If not, and if you're not intending
to add to the load (by extending upwards for instance) then you won't
need to touch the footings.
