The Yvonne Arnaud Theatre is opening its doors to support community groups through use of their café spaces for self-organised meetings and activities. The Yvonne Arnaud team are delighted to be able to offer a safe and welcoming place to meet, whether you are a regular playgoer or not!

The Yvonne Arnaud Theatre is an independent theatre and registered charity. This light and airy Grade II listed building in central Guildford looks out over the theatre’s garden and the River Wey, with the café serving a range of drinks, light bites and sweet treats. The café spaces are currently free for use by community groups before 12pm and after 2.30pm, Tuesdays to Saturdays (subject to availability).

For groups that are looking for a more private space, the theatre has a wide range of attractive and adaptable rooms available for commercial hires as well as reduced/charity rate hires. From corporate conferences to business meetings, birthday parties and beyond, what could be better than hosting or celebrating in this fantastic building? The Yvonne Arnaud’s catering team can provide catering for all your needs – from a champagne reception to a finger buffet. Their versatile rooms, superb service, unique theatre environment and event management experience ensure that your event is in safe, experienced and capable hands.
