The Cube is a Microplex Cinema and venue in central Bristol. It is a programmed space but occasionally has space to hire. This is an alternative venue that often puts on events that cannot happen elsewhere in Bristol.

Enquiries for anything that is working within what the Cube is (a volunteer run cinema / arts space) are particularly welcome. This space has been used for cinema, live-music, cabaret, performance art and private events.

This listing is from the Performance Team and primarily aimed at performers, but the space available for other uses.

Generally we can only offer rehearsal space to work created collaboratively for the Cube space.
