Bronte’s of Thorne

Cafe and play area opened in Summer 2018.

“It’s got a little cafe (cakes are yummy) and then a play area with dress up and the like and then also a sensory room” Catherine,  Doncaster Mumbler Chat Group Feb 2019

“I am a regular at Brontes. Been going since it first opened and love it! My daughters are almost 2 and almost 7. They both love it and so do their friends of similar ages. The owners are very friendly and always happy to help with anything. And their food is delicious! I recommend the milkshakes and the home made sausage rolls. They do an amazing afternoon tea for £12.95 each” Emily, Doncaster Mumbler Chat Group Feb 2019

Standard Tickets booked online are priced at :

£2.49 for adults (age 19+)

£2.49 for child (age 2-12)

£2.49 for teens (age 13-18 – only for shows after 10.30am)

£2.49 for Seniors (60+ years)
