Happy Hour

Come down early and enjoy a Cocktail for £7 between 5.30–6.30pm. 


We’ve temporarily increased the number of guests you can bring to the Lounge to 3 for Members and 5 for Members Plus, so you can share the experience. 


There's no need to book, just walk up. But for any queries or special requirements, drop us a line on [email protected].

Dark Nights

The Lounge is closed when there are no performances on in the Theatre or the Hall.


During busy periods, we'll prioritise members enjoying food and drink purchased at the Lounge Bar. 

Please note, hours may be reduced owing to staff shortages in the industry
