Excellent fun evening, last night at the friendly Barbican Theatre. Hadn't heard of this Devon theatre group but we were comprehensively entertained and left in great spirits to see the night out in the nearby Dolphin.

Too hot to be cooked in a wok, and change the packaging that says microwave proof, it shows Staff are charming, place relaxed. Food just a bit missing even at this price.

Never went there before last year, and I got tickets to see one production (the name escapes me). But the audience didn't realise we were part of the production as well, we ended up on a boat trip to the Royal William Yard as immigrants

Excellent theatre in prime location with a great, intimate atmosphere. There are always bands, plays and entertainment to see. This is also a great place to come for some Salsa dancing and cocktails on a Friday night.

Come hear maybe four times a year. Mixed bag of entertainment but usually very well done. Doesn't get much publicity but has a large justified following. If you have evenings to fill while in Plymouth, always check what's on here. The bar downstairs does better than average meals and has frequent cabaret and music on the very little stage there.

Came last night and had a whale of a time. £10 a head which we pre booked online. Not as big in the room by the small cabaret stage as in the much bigger theatre upstairs. Recommended.
