My wife and i attended the curve theatre the other night to watch a performance of sister act. This was performed by amateurs and not professional performers. I have to say the show was fantastic and just as good if not better than a west end show without the price tag. The theatre itself is fairly new opened by HM... More

What fascinated me was being able to see behind stage. Quite a complicated set up. The sound system was superb and the music excellent.

This is a very comfortable theatre, the seating is good with an excellent view of the stage. The bar facilities are very well positioned. Overall, this is a great place to see a show. Well done to all those involved with this venue.

My frequent visits to Leicester's Curve never disappoint. This beautiful modern theatre has the most uptodate technical facilities outside London's West End. In fact they are renowned for being so advanced that some shows struggle to find a theatre that can match its capabilities. As a result we in Leicester often see shows that are never staged elsewhere. recent examples... More

We choose to travel 26 miles to Leicester to see shows at The Curve in Leicester (rather than where we live), because we really love the ambience and vibe of The Curve. The theatre is small enough to be intimate and all the seats appear to have a good view. We always park next door at the National car park... More

I visited The Curve for the first time recently and was quite disappointed. The Theatre seats aren't particularly comfortable and the actual theatre is quite sterile with little soul. The production I saw was excellent thank goodness. At the interval I tried to get a drink from the bar well what a waste of time that was, I queued and... More
