First time we have opted for a Cambridge show instead of London. We were very impressed. A very emotional rendition of a classic book. The music used throughout left you with goosebumps. Would definitely recommend. Although there is a very strict policy on checking bags...More

I love Cambridge Arts Theatre and have seen many shows over the years. However, I think that the bag policy is simply over the top. I was asked to put a small carrier bag containing an M&S jumper (shock horror) into the cloakroom whilst another...More

We have just been asked to leave this theatre as I refused to put my handbag in the unstaffed cloakroom. It was only marginally larger than the size designated in their diagram. The staff refused to search my bag (unlike every other theatre) and insisted...More

The scale of the university, plus the surrounding science parks mean that The Cambridge arts scene significantly exceeds that of similarly sized cities north of London. As a result, this little gem of a theatre is able to attract a very high standard of shows...More

Lovely venue. Usual theatre prices on bar and ice cream (ie not cheap) love going here. Very comfy seats and friendly staff. We saw jack and the bean stalk and only criticism would be why the leading role (Jack) was played by a lady as...More

Jack a the Beanstalk was fantastic. Lavish costumes, slick song and dance routines and even a giant erm... giant! Loved every minute. Excellent view from the circle seats, facilities all clean comfortable and pleasant. Nice view of the church from the bar, too. Highly recommended.
