Priory Road Theatre

This is the University's new 450 seat theatre

Parking around the University campus can be difficult. There is street parking and we are assured the people parking in University Walk will not be ticketed in the evenings (although we can take no responsibility for this). The nearest car parks are those we recommend for our usual venue in the Chemistry Dept - on Park Lane, the NCP on Trenchard Street and the NCP on Berkeley Place, just off the Triangle.
