Backstage Bar

In 2016 we began our redevelopment works that will transform our front of house King Street entrance into a welcoming, access-friendly community space that everyone will be able to enjoy.

During this time, we have transformed our backstage Paintshop into an exciting pop-up space featuring an excellent selection of food and drink from across the South West.

Enhance your theatre visit by pre-ordering your drinks, sweets, cheese and charcuterie boards, ready for you to enjoy from up to 90 minutes prior to each show.


Whether you are celebrating a special occasion, marking an anniversary or just looking for that extra treat, our carefully crafted Theatre Packages are available to cover them all.
