Browse the wide variety of stalls and see what you’ll find… Don’t forget to stop at the vintage tearoom on the first floor. Refresh yourself with a brew and sample a cheeky cake or two!
The building itself is an old 1920’s cinema – with the original cinema space restored and films being shown once again.

The Regent Cinema
The doors of the Regent Cinema originally opened in 1921, with 1092 seats inside and a retractable roof!
For decades it was a popular night out until the appeal of the silver screen tarnished in the late 1960s. By 1969 it was eyes down for bingo during the week.
But that all changed in 2016. After some serious refurbishment and restoration, The Regent Cinema reopened the doors once again to the cinema going public.
For example, the old seats (above) were all saved and refurbished. From drab blue to plush red. Single and double seats now available, all with a table for those drinks and snacks.
