The Cornerstone Arts Centre in Didcot is a wonderful place right in the heart of Didcot. It hosts a varied programme of theatre productions, art exhibitions, music, comedy and workshops. It has a smart and stylish feel and is a lovely place to hang out for an afternoon. We would highly recommend a visit.
Cornerstone Family Theatre Shows
We have tried several of the family theatre productions and would highly recommend them for a first family theatre trip. The performances have been excellent and the theatre is small and intimate so young children are guaranteed a good view. The performances we have been to have lasted for 45 minutes without an interval which was just right for the younger member of the audience. Check out the Red Kite Days What’s On page to find details of listings.
There is a lovely cafe in the entrance to the Arts Centre with indoor and outdoor seating. The menu is great for kids – with treat options such as milkshakes as well as healthy snack options such as hummus, carrot and pepper platter. We love the ‘book swap’ shelf in the cafe which also has a selection of toys and books for kids to look at whilst in the cafe.
The Cornerstone runs some great workshops for kids in the school holidays with art and theatre options. Check out the Red Kite Days holiday classes page for listings.

There are weekly classes on offer for children and young people aged 5-18. Classes include youth theatre, parent and toddler ballet and street dance. Check out the Red Kite Days clubs and classes page for listings.
