The Courtyard supports a thriving Youth Theatre as well as an adult participation programme and stages everything from cutting edge drama to pantomime. Other classes and workshops include Garrick Singers, Yoga, Writing Room, Life Drawing, Film Making Club and Dancing Tots.

Cinema showings vary from family-friendly animations and independent films to blockbusters. The Courtyard Cinema hosts the acclaimed Borderlines Film Festival and strives to champion local and emerging film makers, screening short films before full length features. They also host regular bespoke cinema showings including baby-friendly screenings, dementia friendly screenings, relaxed screenings and dog-friendly screenings.

The Courtyard’s gallery walls are always adorned with an extensive selection of artwork from local upcoming artists, national and international exhibitions to installations and interactive projects.

The Courtyard also plays host to a number of visitors who attend for a variety of other reasons. Business conferences, children’s parties, christenings or a relaxing lunch with friends are just some of the ways guests can enjoy the beautiful, glass fronted Courtyard building.
