Food and Drink


Whether you are looking for a healthy lunch or a guilty pleasure; a quick fizzy drink or a long relaxing cuppa; a place to enjoy the sunshine or watch the rain fall, the Festival Theatre Cafe is the place to be. 

Open Monday to Saturday from 10am until the show starts for coffee, tea, cakes, light lunches and a quick bite before the performance. The bar will remain open until after the interval. On nights with no show in the Theatre the Café will close at 5pm (with last food orders at 4pm).

The Festival Theatre Cafe is committed to sourcing our products from local suppliers as often as possible. You can enjoy healthy soups and salads from Union of Genius, homemade bread and pastries from Manna House Bakery, delicious cakes from The Herbivore Kitchen and delightul teas from Eteaket.
