Cork Arts Theatre Club Ltd

We are about a half a year away from having to close Cork Arts Theatre doors for good and that is not okay. We rent the venue to both community and professional companies. We have a building that we have a mortgage on, and that has to be paid every month along with building expenses...and no ongoing funding.
Established in 1976 as a club by and for the arts community in Cork, the fondly named “CAT Club” quickly became a landmark, serving not only as a venue for amateur, professional but also for schools and colleges.
We are a not for profit and serve the community in Cork.
The theatre does not get on going funding and is dependent rental income, with that said we are the most affordable in city.
Like all arts organizations covid has hit us very hard but unlike most venues get no ongoing funding from Arts Council. The Cork Arts Theatre has been the venue that many have began their love of acting journey . The venue does not belong to anyone person but rather is held in trust for the Arts community in Cork City and County.

Our Mission 
The first is the belief that theatre can be of enormous benefit to those members of the community for whom it would not ordinarily be a resource. Our mission in this regard is to ensure that the venue remains accessible to as many creative groups and individuals as possible.
The second is the belief that the most thought-provoking theatre is created by artists working together in a spirit of mutual support and encouragement. The Cork Arts Theatre, with the support of the theatre staff and Executive Committee will strive to play its part in facilitating the creation of quality theatre with all the resources we have available.
