The Junction is an arts centre in Cambridge celebrating the intersection of art and life. Its audiences and artists experience and explore contemporary performance, popular culture, creative learning and the rich territories in-between.
The Junction is located in the South West of Cambridge, fifteen minutes walk from the centre of the city. It is an edgy urban venue serving communities from across Cambridge and the region. It has three primary spaces in which it runs its programmes: J1 is a large versatile performance and social space with a standing capacity of 800, J2 is a 220 seat theatre, and J3 is a light-filled multipurpose space excellent for learning, rehearsal and talks.
The Junction’s programme is made up of three inter-related areas of activity: arts development and presentation; popular culture with a focus of music, comedy and clubs; and creative learning and skills development in the arts.
The Junction believes contemporary culture is enriched by the intersection of the arts, popular culture and creative learning. The Junction’s programme therefore privileges an exploration of this intersection and its company identity is led by an exploration of ‘where worlds collide’.
