I took my grandchildren to the theatre to see the "Bubble Man". The theatre staff were very competent and kind. The theagtre seats were very comfortable and the stage could be seen from every angle. The audience consisted of families, some with very young children. During the course of the show some of the children were invited onto the stage.... More

The vibe here is great, busy and friendly, lots to see in the cinema and theatre, or just pop in for breakfast, lunch or dinner! The staff are great too, Rob is my favourite!

Seen Jimmy Carr & Sean Hughes there this month, the theatre is intimate, well kept, great location and very reasonable. And what's more- it's on my doorstep!

I enjoyed a delicious meal when visiting the theatre. It's up at the uni, and easy to access with the uni bus from the bus station. They hold regular improvisation nights, plays and cinema. Good fun!

Have seen countless acts inside the Gulbenkian. Pretty reasonable and the uniquely initimate venue keeps for an interesting night! Prices can be slightly high for some acts, but it's worth it for the experience! Book a show and definitely check it out whilst you re in town.

Excellent little theatre, much better value than the equally exciting Marlowe. Some great, less well known shows. Check out the up coming programme

Forget the Marlowe, this is a much nicer option - easy parking, easy access and very comfortable. The restaurant and bar are reasonably priced too.

I've been to the Gulbenkian many times and I have to say I love it there. There is always something different to see and a very friendly atmosphere.
