Saw Bellowhead - they were fab. The staff at the theatre were great, and we were delayed getting into our seats as the sound check was delayed but the staff came out in the cold and told us what was going on. Seats are a bit small and the leg room small but you;d expect that in an old theatre.... More

Went recently to see Bellowhead on their final tour. The theatre was packed but the staff were great. It ideally situated right on the seafront and plenty of parking nearby. Would definately go there again.

"Nights on Broadway" the Bee Gee's story. We were excited and looking forward to what promised to be a night of nostalgia and great songs, what we got were three guys singing bee gee songs. A couple of the songs were quite well performed but the majority of the songs were murdered! I appreciate that following Barry Gibb is a... More

Travelled up from Cornwall to see Hairspray and loved every minute of it! Brilliant show! Seats were comfortable but pick an aisle seat if you have long legs. Good view from the stalls. Only negative was the theatre got much to warm.

What an amazing upbeat night! Hairspray was everything I imagined with a fantastic cast, wonderfully talented musicians and super atmosphere within the theatre. I would definitely watch another show performed by TOPS, they are incredibly professional and exciting to watch. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly throughout the evening. Thank you for a super night.

Went to the matinee and really enjoyed it. Lovely theatre with good views of the stage from seats. Not too cramped in terms of legroom either.

We went to see And Then There Were None at the Princess Theatre, Torquay while on holiday in Devon. To be honest, I wish we hadn't wasted our money. The theatre is not huge and appears quite old inside. Nothing wrong with that, apart from the fact that the seats are so close together that, even sitting right back, your... More
