We came to see One Man Two Guvnors, and thoroughly enjoyed it. This is a lovely, traditional theatre near the centre of town - Grade 2 listed and founded over 200 years ago. With about 950 seats over four levels, and with boxes at the sides, it is cosy and intimate, the acoustics are good, and you feel close to... More

As a first time visitor to the theatre I asked for seating advice from lady at the box office. She recommended buying tickets in row D of the gallery as the view in the first row is partially obscured by a brass safety rail. However, we still couldn't see anything from our row because theatregoers in the first row lent... More

This is a beautiful, old, traditional theatre with wonderful internal fixtures, fittings and decoration. A wide range of productions are staged here, some for a week, some for just one night. We have seen plays, musicals, rock music and opera here. The one feature that let's it down is the toilets, which leave a lot to be desired.

first opera , if you decide to go in the stalls do not sit in the last 2 rows as you won't see the subtitles if the opera is foreign, still enjoyed the show though
