Saw Jimmy Carr, which is always an experience... Seats "in the gods" but had a good view. Theatre was very very warm, needed ventilation or air conditioning. Staff were very friendly & helpful both booking and on the night. Would be happy to catch another show there, if I can bring a fan (the electric sort...)

The theatre is lovely and clean, the staff friendly and helpful and the atmosphere condusive to an excellent evening out. Jethro was brilliant! However, there appeared to be no form of air conditioning (or if it was there, it was completely useless!!) The Circle was nowhere near full, thank goodness. If it had been we would have been unable to... More

This was a nice little place by the sea with lots of restaurants nearby. The show was great and entertaining. The staff seemed organised and pleasant.
