About Cambridge Junction

Cambridge Junction is the welcoming home of original arts, entertainment, and creativity. Sharing the power of live performance since 1990.

At Cambridge Junction we invite you to be part of something extraordinary.

We welcome everyone to share our love of the arts, music, comedy and creativity in all its forms.

We work with young people and local communities and artists to make radical, inclusive and engaging shared experiences.

As a charity and social enterprise we believe in the importance of removing barriers so everyone can take part in creative opportunities.

As well as our programme of arts and popular culture we work intensively with young people and local communities on inclusive projects and events to ensure even more people share in the benefits of being part of something.

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.
