Work has begun on a front-of-house kitchen at The Castle theatre in Wellingborough.
The kitchen will serve a new lunchtime menu featuring a range of on-the-go lunches made in the new visible kitchen by the theatre’s in-house chef.
A spokesman for the theatre said: “Using a versatile and mobile Libero cooking station, our in-house chef will be at the heart of the diners’ experience, cooking and serving a range of lunchtime favourites, sharing platters and daily house specials, in view of customers.
“A reduced menu of light–bite options will also be available from 3pm until the start of the evening’s performance.
“With menu options ranging from delicious homemade soups, and specials including tex-mex dishes, grill, wok and pasta dishes, The Castle’s welcoming cafe and bar space will be an affordable and convenient place to meet for a business lunch, a family lunch, or cappuccino and slice of home-made cake.”
The development is being funded by Wellingborough Council and the kitchen will be in full operation from Monday, September 10.
The theatre’s bar and catering facilities will remain open throughout this period, with a reduced version of the new menu available from Thursday, August 23.
