Been to this theatre five times now since it opened and every time it has been brilliant. The staff are always friendly, the place is always clean and tidy, the seats are comfy and the overall atmosphere is amazing. Even the toilets are spotless, the only draw back which you expect from a theatre is the pricing of the food,... More

Booked tickets online for the Panto. Collection from the box office was easy and once we worked out the way to our seats we were very pleased with the view of the stage. First class theatre facilities and an excellent show too. A word of warning, drinks and snacks are not cheap so make sure you have a fully loaded... More

Went here to see th Panto with our 3 yhear old Grandson. We had the back row of the Stalls and we had a very good view. Parking is good outside of the theatre. Small ice cream £3.50 a little steep but nice ice cream.

We go every year to the panto. Been to the Aylesbury theatre for about the last 5 years now. This year was a big disappointment. Sam Bailey from the X Factor along with one of her cronies who played King Rat, can't remember her name although I did buy a £5 program so could look it up if I could... More

We were delighted by the wide seats and the great acoustics and the lovely ambience of the interior of the theatre. We were delighted with the high standards of the artists taking part ,their singing, costumes, and general performance was without fault. It was disappointing to find that the carol 'The Twelve Days Of Christmas' contained coarse messages. This carol... More

Fantastic venue and a great panto. Sam Baileys voice was great and Andy Collins was amazing. Will be back for next years! The only criticism is the over priced drinks (£4.60) for a pint. There is a weather spoons opposite for a cheaper alternative.

This is a great venue to watch a play or listen to music. The outer reception area can be a bit drafty in winter but other than that it's virtually perfect. Inside the theatre auditorium is beautiful. Thank goodness it was built before all the cuts came through.

Great venue... The best leg room regardless of seats. Good sound quality too and a wide range of shoes throughout the year .... Bar a little pricy but seems to be the norm these days
