An absolute gem in the heart of Durham City! By day, it's a picturesque and much-loved café located upstairs from the junction of Owengate and Saddler Street, a stone's throw from the Castle and Cathedral. By night, for special occasions and across the whole of our festival, it’s a cosy, bohemian venue suitable for compact drama, music, stand-up and similar. It has an alcohol licence and serves up delicious coffees and treats.

Entrance and cafe counter. (Photos during performance to come!)

Performance end of the room. (Photos during performance to come!)

Bar (within performance space) YES

Note: It’s immediately on your right hand side as you turn up towards Palace Green and the Castle and Cathedral. In daytime there are tables and chairs outside. It’s accessed via tight stairs so unfortunately limited from a wheel chair perspective.
