Situated in the heart of the Anglia Ruskin University's Cambridge campus, the Mumford Theatre presents a range of professional touring, local community and student theatre. We also host music events, including a series of free lunchtime concerts.
With an excellent tiered seating arrangement, we're able to boast an enviable reputation for offering a good view from all 270 of our seats.
The Mumford Theatre opened in 1970 as the 'College Auditorium', when Anglia Ruskin was known as Cambridgeshire College of Arts and Technology (CCAT). When the then Principal, Deryck Mumford, retired in 1977 the theatre was renamed in his honour at a gala performance of Menotti's opera The Consul.
The Mumford Theatre now forms part of Anglia Ruskin's Faculty of Arts, Law & Social Sciences.
