Hi, at present the bar is open when we have a performance on. It is possible to stay for a quiet drink whilst the first half of a show is on but the bar generally closes after films have started and sometimes after the start of one act plays so it's always best to check. After we have found the funds to complete our refurbishment, the bar and the rest of our catering facilities will become less tied to the performance schedule and will have their own regular trading hours so our website or Facebook page is a good place to keep up to date with the latest developments.
