There are two bars located in The Core which offer a wide range of alcoholic and soft drinks. We also stock a large selection of confectionery and Gallones ice creams, to suit every budget.

Bars open 1 hour before the performance so why not join us early to enjoy a pre-show drink in one of The Core’s bars?

We recommend pre-ordering your interval drinks to avoid possible queues. Drinks can be taken into all performance spaces in disposable cups – just ask at the bar.

If you are attending The Core as part of a group, ask at the time of booking about our brilliant packages which can include food, drink and exclusive room hire.


When merchandise is available, this is housed at the bars, or on our specific Merchandise Desk at the top of the stairs.

Family Friendly

With our commitment to being a family friendly venue, The Core provides baby changing facilities, a microwave to warm baby food, booster seats and a very warm and family-friendly welcome. There are also activities available in the bar for most family shows to entertain whilst waiting for the auditorium to open.
