The Portland Arms


For decades the Portland has been an essential part of the Cambridge live music scene welcoming local, national and international acts of all genres and backgrounds to play in our dedicated venue space. In 2012, the small 100 capacity venue space was enlarged and expanded and now can accommodate up to 200 people in a modern high-tech space that can adapt to almost any purpose. Whether you are in a band and are looking for a venue to hold your own gig or are looking for a modern space to hold a meeting or gathering we can cater for groups of all sizes and requirements. As well as the venue the pub has two independent bars and a courtyard garden.
