Created in 2010 by Rod Thomson and his sons, Chris and Andy, BASE Woodfired Pizza has become a firm favourite in the hearts (and stomachs) of Cantabrians.
In late 2016, BASE @ The Court opened to a standing ovation, providing an ever changing menu of delicious pizzas for audiences to enjoy before the show.
BASE @ The Court opens at different times, depending on your performance - please check the schedule below for more information. We advise ordering your pizza at least an hour before the show begins, as we cannot guarantee service after this time.
One pizza normally feeds two people.
BASE @ The Court has wowed audiences for over a year now. These delicious pizzas have transformed the foyer into a lively hub of activity and mozzarella. We have been trialing different ways of delivering pizza service with maximum efficiency including pre-booking online. The most effective service appears to be the simplest - first come, first served. To make sure you don't miss out, be sure to arrive at the theatre at least an hour or more before the start of the performance. Please note the wait time may be up to 15 minutes and pizza sales will be capped to make sure everyone has a chance to enjoy their pizza before the show begins. We cannot guarantee service less than an hour before the show as we need to ensure there is enough time for your pizza to be cooked and enjoyed before the show begins.
If you're attending the show with a group and plan to order ten or more pizzas, please click here to liaise with our front of house team.
