Info

Cambridge Junction is the arts centre in Cambridge where art meets life.

At Cambridge Junction, audiences and artists experience and explore contemporary performance, popular culture, creative learning, and the rich territories in-between. We are committed to art and entertainment that is up-and-coming, youthful and cutting-edge. We seek to be relevant and meaningful to the lives of audiences, and informed by our location in Cambridge.
Located in the South West of Cambridge, fifteen minutes walk from the centre of the city, Cambridge Junction is an edgy urban venue serving communities from across the city and the region. We have three primary spaces in which we run our programmes: J1 is a large versatile performance and social space with a standing capacity of 850; J2 is a 220 seat theatre; and J3 is a light-filled multipurpose space excellent for learning, rehearsal and talks.

Cambridge Junction is a social enterprise, earning over 50% of its income through events and activities which is reinvested back into the business and its social mission.

Cambridge Junction’s programme is made up of three inter-related areas of activity:
• arts development and presentation
• popular culture with a focus of music, comedy and clubs
• creative learning and skills development in the arts, using the organisation as a site for learning and with a commitment to supporting young people.

"With an excellent booking policy, good facilities and friendly staff, Cambridge Junction is certainly a jewel in the east of England's crown." - The Guardian

"Cambridge Junction has real knack for supporting up-and-coming talent" - Cambridge News
