Brentwood Theatre’s new coffee shop was officially launched last week.
The theatre is now open for coffee from Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm.
It was opened on Friday by Eric Pickles MP for Brentwood and Ongar, Mayor of Brentwood, Cllr Ann Coe, and Ian Davies, a trustee of the theatre and headteacher at Brentwood School.
Mr Pickles said: “The theatre’s main remit is to provide a space for the community, and the opening of the coffee shop will enhance its profile.
“I am very pleased to hear groups which already use the theatre during the day will have the chance to stay around and chat over coffee, and hope new groups will be encouraged to come in too.”
Visitors to the theatre will now also able to pick up their orange recycling sacks and buy green waste bags and food recycling bags when the coffee shop is open.
