The Albany offers a wide range of events, for all ages and interests. As well as the performances in its theatre, the centre hosts a range of different groups and exhibitions. The café is definitely recommended for lunch. Food is freshly cooked and reasonably priced; there are always choices of hot food including vegetarian options, and the menu changes often. Sandwiches and cakes are also on offer, along with an excellent range of fair-trade coffees and teas. There is wifi, and the garden is great on sunny days.
