Giesens @ The Court Bar, at the far end of the foyer, offer a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks for audiences to enjoy before, during interval and after the show. Many productions at The Court will have a special themed cocktail, and in the winter months why not treat yourself with some delicious mulled wine?!

What to Wear
Many audience members do enjoy dressing up for their visit the theatre while some come straight from work and others will take a more casual approach. There is no specific dress code for a visit to The Court, though we encourage you to wear what you feel most comfortable in. A 'smart casual' approach always works for a night at the theatre. If you're attending in winter, it can get cold in the foyer so we would recommend bringing a coat.
To avoid disrupting the performance please remember to switch off your mobile phones. Please be aware the glow and vibration from your phone can disrupt fellow audience members around you and often the performers.
Please do not take photos or videos inside the theatre, even for Snapchat. This is to protect the designs of each show and can disturb the performers and audience around you.
We encourage you instead to take your photos in our foyer pre-or-post-show, possibly while you're enjoying a BASE pizza or drink from Giesens @ The Court!
