Although we had intended to open with a full food and drink offer at Contact from Monday 4th October, our circumstances have now changed.

Audiences can still enjoy a bar service for all shows and public events, but we will not be serving food for the time being.

We’re already working on an exciting new offer and can’t wait to update you about our future food and drink plans – watch this space!

For now, here are some of our staff’s top recommendations for tasty traders in our neighbourhood:
