Your Visit

The Workshop is situated opposite Chapelfield Gardens, in the centre of Norwich. We are close to city centre car parks and numerous transport links. 

During the day the coffee bar serves hot and cold drinks, cakes and sandwiches. For evening shows the Café becomes a licensed bar, serving a range of wines, continental beers, spirits and ciders. 

The Café Bar is a great place to meet friends for morning coffee, lunch and evening drinks. You can enjoy reading and working with free Wi-Fi. 

The Café is breastfeeding friendly, they will warm bottles on request and there is a toy box and play area for children. 

Baby changing facilities in accessible toilets on ground floor.

Pre-order your interval drinks from the Bar staff before the show begins to avoid the wait at the bar.
