Offering a variety of professional performances, the Cambridge Arts Theatre is a must-visit venue for culture vultures during any trip to Cambridgeshire. With companies including English Touring Opera performing at the venue, many West End shows do a run here prior to hitting London, so expect to see some well-known names from the world of theatre and TV hitting the stage. A diverse mix of shows, from opera and drama to musical theatre and a classic pantomime, are held throughout the year, so you can book a ticket to enjoy a performance whatever season you are visiting Cambridgeshire.
A Cultural Highlight During Your Hotel Stay in Cambridgeshire
Located in the centre of Cambridge, a stone's throw from the chapel at King's College and by the historic pedestrianized zone, it's easy to get to and convenient for parking too. There are three car parks within walking distance of the theatre, although if you are staying in one of the city's many guesthouses or hotels you'll find it a simple walk from door to door. Alongside the big name shows, the programme of events also features productions aimed at children, as well as 'relaxed' performances. With a selection of hotels in Cambridgeshire available offering family rooms, it's easy to bring the whole family to enjoy a show. Assisted performances, with audio description and British Sign Language interpretation are also offered, with all details online.
Relax and Enjoy an Evening at the Cambridge Arts Theatre
With a wide range of places to stay nearby, from boutique boltholes to B&Bs, you'll find you can relax and enjoy a full night at the theatre. Pre-theatre meals are offered at restaurants in the vicinity and there's no need to rush off after the show. Theatre-goers can enjoy a drink at one of Cambridge Arts Theatre's two bars, which serve a selection of coffee, wine, beer and spirits and is operated by the theatre itself so all profits go back into supporting the work at the theatre. Some productions also offer pre and post-show talks and discussions, a great opportunity to find out more and ask any questions.
