You can book out lunch space for your school in advance (subject to availability)

If you book to see The Bear, we will contact you closer to the date of the show about pre-ordering any catering, if this is something you require. 

All tickets are unreserved, with some seats on the floor mats to get children closer to the action. We can go through this with you at the point of booking.

We're located in the beautiful Cannon Hill Park where there's plenty to explore!

You can also enjoy our free festive mural at MAC (details to be published in November 2022).
