ON-SITE AMENITIES

CAFE AND BARS

Avoid the line-up: pre-order drinks and ice cream before the show, and they’ll be waiting for you at the interval.

Bottled water can be taken into the auditorium, as can our lidded theatre cups, provided at no charge for all other drinks purchased on-site.


Festival Theatre Café: Located in the lobby of the Festival Theatre, the café offers a wonderful selection of light lunch and dinner options, sweet treats, drinks and ice cream, as well as pre-ordered picnics.

Theatre Bars: Enjoy snacks, beverages, wine, beer and ice cream at the Festival, Avon and Studio theatres.

Email us for information about menus or catered events.
