The Courtyard is Herefordshire’s centre for the arts. We provide a space for innovation, creativity, and participation for the whole community.
As a registered charity our community is at the heart of everything we do. At The Courtyard you can catch stellar touring shows and in-house productions. From family shows to West End dramas and even your favourite tribute band! We bring you brilliant blockbusters and art-house film from our Cinema space. You can come to regular comedy nights from well-known names to up and coming stand-ups.
We run inspiring workshops for all ages within the building and out in the community, as well as educational sessions in schools and colleges. We have over 300 participants in our Youth Theatre and a successful Creative Ageing programme.
Take a wander around the latest thought-provoking exhibition in our gallery. Or if you just want to treat yourself to a spot of lunch, or a tasty cake from the award-winning Courtyard Café Bar and soak up all of the beautiful natural light in our glass building, that’s okay too! You can even hire a meeting room or hold an entire conference using our facilities.
The Courtyard is an inclusive and welcoming organisation, aspiring to achieve artistic excellence in all that we do within an environment that is welcoming to everyone.
