For some time we have been asked if we serve food prior to performances and unfortunately that had not been possible due to the fact that our ‘kitchen’ was not suitable for food preparation. Thanks to a grant under the Arts Council’s Cultural Recovery Fund last year we have been able to put in a proper commercial kitchen with appropriate equipment so that we can meet all necessary food hygiene requirements.
From the survey we carried out earlier this year, and we were very pleased at the large number of responses, we have been able to set up our initial offer.
As part of our overall commitment to achieving a sustainable future we will be offering non-meat choices and where possible a vegan offer all presented in biodegradable boxes and utensils. This also has a practical purpose as the kitchen is not big enough for us to be able to have a separate safe preparation area for meat and we do not believe that the turnover will enable us to keep meat safely. Most of the food will be prepared on site.

WHEN WILL IT BE AVAILABLE?
All food orders will need to be placed 24 hours prior to the day before the performance. This will enable us to make sure that the food is available early enough for you to eat it prior to the performance. Usually, we will aim to have the food ready about an hour beforehand so that you can enjoy it in time.
