Legendary performers, such as Syd Barrett and David Bowie, have performed at this historic venue.

The Cambridge Corn Exchange is an iconic 19th-century building that hosts concerts and fun performances. A diverse array of shows, from classical music to standup comedy routines, takes place in the site’s theater. Book a ticket to a show and settle into the comfortable velvet seats of the auditorium for an evening of entertainment.

The building dates back to 1875, when it was used as a gathering point for farmers trading cereal grains. During World War II, it acted as a base where women cleaned and repaired guns. In the second half of the 20th century, it fell into disrepair until being entirely renovated and reopened as a concert hall in 1986. Today, the Corn Exchange is occasionally used by the University of Cambridge as an examination hall.

The multipurpose entertainment venue is among the largest in the region and hosts around 300 shows per year. Take your seat in the auditorium, which fits 1,849 people in total. It is split into sections: the flat floor, tiered seating, the mezzanine and the balcony. Appreciate the excellent acoustics of the hall big-name bands such as Oasis and Queen have graced its stage.

Stop by the Schering Bar on your way to a show. It opens just before a performance and serves drinks to the audience for the rest of the evening. Souvenirs and other merchandise are also available for purchase from this bar.

Book a ticket at the box office beside the building or reserve online or by phone. There are discounts available for children, students and families. The venue is open to visitors from morning to early evening from Monday through Saturday. On Sundays, it only opens for shows.

Find the Cambridge Corn Exchange just to the east of the River Cam in the center of the city, not far from the Church of St. Mary the Great, the Cambridge City Council and the Cambridge Tourist Information Centre. You can easily reach the theater on foot from many parts of the University of Cambridge or by taking a local bus.
