We have visited the Curve for a variety of productions drama, dance, musicals and children's productions. The productions have always been of the highest quality in both the main theatre and studio. They also work to involve the local community in workshops and productions. care is also taken to offer relaxed performances for children and adults with additional needs. Most... More

First time I had ever visited The Curve Theatre and I was not disappointed. Venue is very spacious and seating of the theatre itself is very comfortable. Plenty of leg room (which has always been a problem for my husband - him being over 6 feet tall) The sound was good and gradient just right. We never had to suffer... More

Great theatre. We saw Abigail's Party there and thought what a nice cosy theatre the Curve was. Large cafe with plenty of seating.

Every visit to this venue has been wonderful. Productions vary from small, exciting new companies and student productions, to vibrant, visually stunning shows, often just before or just after West-End debuts. I am delighted to have this theatre within easy reach of my home and regularly enjoy their programme of shows.

The Curve Theatre is a welcome addition to nights out in Leicester. It is just the right size so that the audience is big enough to get the atmosphere but small enough that you are not miles from the action. They have lots of good shows with great reviews but also have a few oddities. Otherwise a great night out... More

It can be tricky to access by car if you at not used to the area. It is sometimes possible to park on some surrounding streets. There is a multi storey car park next to the theatre. You can get your car park ticket verified in the theatre which makes parking around £3.50 (can't remember exactly). Seems a shame it... More

This was our first visit to The Curve. It was one we enjoyed immensely. The building is modern and imaginative. We had lunch in The Curve Bar and it was excellent. Ther were places to sit all around the circumference of the building. On the afternoon we were there a children's programme was also being shown. Altogether it was an... More
