Overview
More
Cambridge Junction is an arts venue which presents an an eclectic programme including live music, theatre, dance, comedy and family events. We have three primary spaces in which we run our programmes: J1 is a large versatile performance and social space with a standing capacity of 850; J2 is a 220 seat theatre; and J3 is a light-filled multipurpose space excellent for learning, rehearsal and talks. Cambridge Junction is a social enterprise, earning over 50% of its income through events and activities which is reinvested back into the business and its social mission. "With an excellent booking policy, good facilities and friendly staff, Cambridge Junction is certainly a jewel in the east of England's crown." - The Guardian "Cambridge Junction has real knack for supporting up-and-coming talent" - Cambridge News

The junction has a range of venue spaces and it caters for a wide range of events. On this occasion we went to one of the smaller auditoria to watch a play. A great arts venue
