About Your Visit

We look forward to welcoming you, whether it’s your first time or you are an old friend.

When you arrive

We have three main spaces; the Nuffield Theatre, Peter Scott Gallery and Great Hall, all of which are located at the Great Hall Complex on Lancaster University campus. Some events take place elsewhere on campus and in the local area. Visit our location page for more information on how to find us.

Upon arrival you will be greeted by our friendly Front of House ushers, who will be happy to assist with any questions you may have.

We do not have a cloak room available to use at the Great Hall Complex.

Fancy a drink?

The Great Hall bar will be open with a variety of locally sourced alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks that you can enjoy on arrival and during the interval at our concerts and shows.

Nearby restaurants and cafes

If you are after something to eat we’d recommend the Market Place, located adjacent to our main venues in the Great Hall Complex. Please do ask our staff about other places to eat and drink on campus during your visit.

There is a Wallings Ice Cream shop on campus and a number of locations to purchase sandwiches, such as WHSmith, Spar, Subway, and the Juice Company. Here is a list of outlets.

If you’re attending outside the University’s term some of the listed cafes/restaurants may be closed or have limited opening hours. Please email us if you’d like further advice.

Late admission

The admittance of latecomers is decided by the guest artists/company. Please check your travel arrangements to ensure you arrive in plenty of time.
