Cambridge Junction


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

General Info
If you are disabled and require the full-time support of an assistant or companion, they will be eligible for a free ticket.  Please ensure that you make this clear at the time of booking, as spaces for seated events may be limited. We regret that complimentary tickets are not available online: please contact the Box Office on 01223 511 511, or alternatively email us your details and we will contact you.

Dedicated disabled parking spaces operated by Cambridge Leisure are situated in front of our venue, and in the ground floor level of the multi-storey car park off Clifton Way.

Some music events in J2 and all events in J1 are standing only. Customers with access requirements or those who have difficulty standing for long periods should inform the Box Office in advance of the event. The Duty Manager of the event will do everything possible to ensure a comfortable viewing position is provided. We regret that, given the nature of the space, we cannot always guarantee a seated position will give a reasonable view of the performance in J1. In the interests of Health and Safety, it is not possible to place freestanding stools or seats at the front of the auditorium in J1 or J2.

Special effects such as haze and strobe lighting are frequently used during performances at Cambridge Junction. Please do contact us if you have any concerns or queries.
