We are an intimate 100 seated venue in the heart of Cork City, with fully licensed bar, coffee shop and rehearsal / meeting room.
Established in 1976 as a club by and for the arts community in Cork the fondly named Cat Club quickly became a landmark, serving not only as a venue for amateur and professional companies alike, but also as the preferred meeting place and socialising hub for all arts enthusiasts.
The new Theatre reopened its fancy new doors in 2006 with a premiere performance of Patrick Galvin’s ‘The Cage’
Since then The Cork Arts Theatre has been pioneering many initiatives, including outreach programmes, writer’s competitions, schools competitions and community drama festivals to make theatre more accessible to the whole community.
