Great Hall is a modern, medium-sized theatre in the centre of Cambridge, suitable for a wide range of performance events. Great Hall is the Performing Arts Centre for The Leys School.  It was completed in September 2013 and officially opened by HRH the Earl of Wessex in January 2014. Since 2016, CTC has used Great Hall at The Leys as its main performance space.

The Great Hall at The Leys is in the historic centre of Cambridge and within 10 minutes’ walk of both the Grand Arcade and Queen Anne Car Parks. Cambridge is a busy city and traffic conditions can be difficult, especially on weekends.  Please factor this into your journey.  After 5pm, parking is free on Trumpington Road near the theatre. There is no car parking available on site except for disabled patrons.
