As Franks is no longer operating at Castle Theatre, we are keen to offer some refreshments until Parkwood take over in January 2019. We are still working out the finer details going ahead, but we do have interim arrangements in place. We are unable to provide the same service as Franks, but Castle employees will be providing drinks and snacks for smaller shows (such as films and live screenings), while the bar for larger events (shows and concerts etc.) is being run by an outside bar operator with full bar capabilities. The bar will not be open when no shows/events are scheduled.
While there may be some tweaks to this arrangement, we expect that this will last until the new theatre management company (Parkwood) takes over the running of the theatre and all of its assets in January 2019.
