The Oak Room VIP Bar

It is often said that a festival becomes, over a period of years, a “family”, where people of like mind, and who share similar passions for an art form, gather together to enjoy the thrill of the season. The Oak Room, our hospitality space for our supporters, guests, the media, the company and other special invitees is where a great deal of this socialising is done. It is an important space for the company too, providing a place where we can spend time with our friends and patrons, share opinions, discuss plans for the future or just simply enjoy a drink and relax. The Oak Room is a comfortable space, with seating, good service and a pleasant atmosphere. We all like to be looked after a bit and in the Oak Room, there is no need to queue for drinks, giving you more time to spend with your guests.

Envoys, Ambassadors, major donors and their guests can enjoy complimentary glasses of prosecco, wine, and soft drinks pre-performance, as well as during the interval. Simply present your Oak Room ticket, issued with your performance tickets, on arrival and please have a form of identification to hand in case required. We would be delighted to welcome supporters and three additional guests at any one time, please contact the Friends Office if you would like to bring more and we will check availability.
