Coming from Milton Keynes where we are very proud of our own theatre, I was somewhat humbled to experience the Curve in Leicester when I visited recently to witness my son's graduation from De Montfort Unversity. This theatre is superb in terms of its design and the flexibility that its studio, stage and main auditorium allow - all of which... More

We attended this venue for our daughters graduation and what a fantastic venue. The whole thing was so well organised and the seating was comfortable and so well run. We would certainly recommend this venue for all.

If you've not been to the Curve, then try it if you get the chance! I came to see 'Hairspray' ... great production and thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening. Plenty of seating areas to gather with friends before the performance. Lots of toilets. It is located in a good place, so you can actually park in central Leicester car parks... More

Nice place and easy too Park. Show was good and I would use it again. Most seats have a decent view but the drinks ordering thing is a rat race at the interval... Don't bother doing it as when you collect you end up being knocked about like a bunch of animals after looking for your drinks on a table.... More

Took my mum to see 'Rocky Horror' and it was amazing, the theatre was clean and tidy, also very helpful staff, the only down side is that drinks and snacks are really expensieve. All in all a very goodnight night out and decent ticket prices.

I go to the curve alot to see the big productions and they are amazing , very professional and modern compared to De montfort hall. Drinks and ice cream are a tad pricey. The only downfall is they only put on 3 big shows a year , the others are for babies and ametures.

Went to see Birdsong at the Curve. Well produced and well acted but the theatre let the show down. The acoustics were poor. We were sat at the rear of the theatre and at times were unable to hear the dialogue properly. Also the tiered seating is too shallow. I had a tall gentleman sat in front of me and... More

Personally I prefer to sit in the stalls. Modern theatre, with state of the art special effects. Stage many outstanding productions including Matthew Bourne, National Theatre etc

A great evening at the curve, really improved since it opened. Easy parking and lovely surroundings. Not many places to eat near by but some good options near belvoir st.
