The Dukes provides Lancaster with a cultural heart. I am always inspired, challenged and entertained and I'm grateful that Lancaster has such a great place where I can enjoy the arts.

The Dukes is fantastic. We love it for family theatre, a good film, drama classes or for just popping in for a drink.
