We visited this theatre for the first time to see Al Murray, and more recently took our grandchildren to see the Cinderella panto.

We've been quite a few times and found there really isn't a bad seat in the house. The shows represent very good value, and there is lots of parking nearby. Also a pretty building so we enjoy visiting.

Friends, I wanted to share our experience at the Waterside. We watched Cinderella panto show at the Waterside theatre last Sunday. The theatre is absolutely fantastic (it was our first experience there) and the show was spectacular and thoroughly entertaining. We would definitely recommend it. I would be delighted to watch more shows at the Waterside.
