The closest car park is The Market Car Park. It’s accessible from next to the old bus station. It’s underneath our building so signage within the car park will direct you to the theatre. It’s also currently free after 3pm

Yes we do have a licensed bar, selling beers, wines, spirits, soft drinks, tea, coffee, sweets, biscuits and crisps. The bar opens for an hour before each performance.
