Gala

The Gala can be found in the middle of Durham, a purpose-built theatre to reflect the area's cultural scene. Inside, there's a modern theatre, a cafe/bar, two cinema screens and some conference facilities. The theatre boasts a large mix of theatre, comedy, music, dance and a cinema programme.

Car parking can be found less than a minute away at the Walkergate multistorey, which is cheap after 6pm. The theatre is just ten minutes from Durham train station, and a number of bus routes stop nearby.
