Café & Shop

The New Vic had a complete facelift this summer. Our newly re-modelled front of house has a stylishly decorated café and bar and a theatre shop where you can pick up New Vic branded items and choose from a great selection of cards.

Reserve a table

If you’re planning to eat before the show, it’s a good idea to reserve a table. Call 01782 717954 ext 325.

Don’t forget that you can pre-order interval drinks using the Interval Slips provided at the bar.
