the Dukes

Creating and presenting great art which changes people’s lives for the better

The Dukes is a registered charity, the only building-based professional producing theatre in Lancashire and  an independent cinema since it opened in 1971.

The Dukes Cafébar is open to all from 11am until 11pm Monday – Saturday. On Sundays we’re open 1/2 hour before film screenings, and 1 hour before satellite screenings. With friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere you’re welcome any time.
