A beautiful little theatre with an excellent variety of productions throughout the year- many with well known actors/actresses. No matter how many times I visit I am never disappointed. Central location easily accessible with multi-storey car park very close by.

We went to see the comedian Sara Pascoe. It was full, I guess the capacity was around 250. The layout and configuration is good with good views and plenty of space and comfort. This felt like a larger venue with a cosy feel to it. Not too busy at the interval and pleasant little bar/foyer area. Parking good in multi... More

Fantastic is all I can really say, we went to see Aladdin at the above just after New Year and it was worth every penny. Well done to the cast and also to the venue for staging it. Bravo indeed..!!

we went to see Aladin and the theatre staff were so helpful. The theatre itself is small and beautifully laid out. I could not see any restricted views. We would certainly visit again.

We visited in October to watch 'Horrible Histories' Fantastic show and perfect for this intimate Theatre. Our seats (row 3) had plenty of leg room thankfully as I am tall. Clean and new entrance/reception areas. Not many toilets, but not a large Theatre. The Theatre is easy to find, opposite both a Prezzo and Jamie's Italian for food, or just... More

Went to see Jools Holland Show, Fantastic, well organised ,to get 20 musicians on a small stage, Excellent show. However, pity about The Bar not enough servers, we like a drink and chat before going in it was hard work to get a drink, then queued on one side for a beer, only to get there to be told only...

The theatre is on Peas Hill, just off the main market square in Cambridge and is an excellent location close to many places to eat, shopping and other Cambridge sites. The entrance is a bit unusual as there is a big front entrance directly across from Jamie Oliver's Pizzaria restaurant (see my review) which leads on to the theatre bar... More

This is a top notch theatre - front of house staff are excellent, and booking is easy. On the other hand, if you are 6' 3" (like me) even the most expensive seats are short of leg room. Aas for what's on the stage - we enjoyed Molere's "The Hypochondriac" but you may see something different!

Watched Blood Brothers - excellent production, with all the singers delivering superb performances. The theatre is not huge, which creates a really great atmosphere. Grand Arcade Carpark is close.

First time I have been here and was very impressed,modern interior friendly staff. View of the stage seemed to be good from everywhere as it is not a huge theatre. Went to see Blood Brothers which was very good an emotional rollercoaster which sucks you in chews you up and spits you out feeling very emotional.
