Welcome back!

We’re delighted to announce that our café bar Nourish is now open with a brand-new menu of locally sourced baked goods and great coffee in a light, open and welcoming space for all the family to enjoy. Nourish's current opening times are Mon - Thu: 10am-4:30pm, Fri - Sat: 10am-8pm and Sun: 11am-4pm.

Now the big news! From 24th July to 4th September, we will be hosting Didcot Garden Party - a summer-long installation injecting colour, life and fun into the heart of our town centre.  The Garden Party will feature a range of shows, workshops, showcases, events and installations across every weekend. It is then our aim to fully reopen Cornerstone on 7th September with a fantastic relaunch line-up. 

Our box office is currently open Tue - Sat: 11am-3pm and can be reached on 01235 515 144 or by emailing cornerstone@southoxon.gov.uk.

Thank you once again for all the support you provide us – we couldn’t do what we do without you and we’re extremely excited to have you coming back through our doors.

Volunteer

You might not have realised that every usher you see when you come to the theatre at Cornerstone are volunteers. We simply would not be able to run the shows without them.

Cornerstone volunteers help out in a variety of ways and play a vital role in keeping a fantastic show on the road!  Our friendly team help to staff the cloakroom and usher performances on show nights, come in for tea and biscuits once a season to assist with the distribution of Cornerstone's season guide and help to distribute posters and flyers locally to promote our programme.  

We are always keen to to hear from new people who are interested in becoming a volunteer and want to support their local arts centre.

Becoming a volunteer at Cornerstone is very rewarding. Not only do you get to watch top UK touring shows for FREE, you will get to meet new people, socialise and also be a part of the magic at Cornerstone Arts Centre. 

Key responsibilities of an usher include:

  • Welcome and assist all visitors to Cornerstone in a friendly, professional and efficient manner
  • Play a key role in an evacuation or emergency situation to ensure customer safety
  • Ensure that our customers are in a safe and comfortable environment at all times

During the year, other opportunities for you to get involved can include: 

  • Marketing support 
  • Coffee catch ups 

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please either pop in and talk to us (ask for the Duty Manager) or call 01235 515144 or click here to email Emma Malley. 

We especailly need extra support this Christmas for our wonderful Christmas show The Adventures of Pinocchio

Any one welcome aged 16 - 100! We look forward to hearing from you.
