Vincent’s also wants to be able to play recorded music between 8am to 11pm.

“As such and in line with industry practice for interval refreshments, the license application will enable the bar to provide refreshments to people attending evening shows and events in the College’s theatre, shows which will both provide performance opportunities for our learners and also enhance our community events and entertainment role.
“During the day the café bar will be open to the public and will only be providing non-alcoholic hot and cold drinks and snacks.”
It will compliment a restaurant currently open to the public for lunch from Tuesday to Friday, and also every Thursday from 7pm.
A coffee lounge is open from 11am to 12noon every weekday.
