How to Find Us

The venue

The Ratae Players rehearse and perform at the International Arts Centre (formerly LCPA), Garden Street, Leicester, LE1 3UA.

It is just across Abbey Street from St Margaret’s bus station.

Directly opposite the front door is the entrance to Abbey Street car park, with the Haymarket car park not too far away. There is also on-street parking in the area.


The venue has a small bar, where you can purchase tea and coffee and a variety of alcoholic and soft drinks. The bar is open before and after each performance and during the interval.
