Just returned home from the magnificent Mole. Such a great experience in a good sized venue with comfortable seats and good views of the stage. Nice place for lunch too. But more of The Mole - it was fresh, innovative, lively and supremely energetic. Fabulous cast, snappy tunes and lyrics with slick pacy direction.I really hope it makes its way... More

You can book online or you pay at the the theatre. They have bathroom facilities which are in close proximity to the exits of... More

I have recently renewed my Curve membership because this theatre is such an amazing venue. It attracts amazing national tours, but what it does best it's own productions of classics and new shows. The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged 13 3/4 the musical is a prime example. Based in the novel by Leicester author Sue Townsend, this musical showcases... More

Me and my wife are members of 'Charity on Wheels' and went to see the performance on March 12th in the afternoon... An excellent show in a beautiful, clean, easy accesable Theatre, so easy to get too and find your way around. (BTW Adrian and Pandora are extremely tallented young people)

Ate in the bistro cafe before seeing Adrian Mole the Musical. Good value and quick service. The play one of many that we've seen was first class. Overall a must see theatre which has great shows and great facilities.

Although this was a preview of the show and it was first time for the team of youngsters who played Adrian, Pandora, Nigel & Barry - the performance was excellent in acting, sets, lighting, quality of production: An highly amusing script that is fsithfully reproduced from the books' dialogue and visually hilarious acting makes this show a MUST see: highly...

Great production and hats off to the two actors who performed to perfection.The theatre itself is nicely set out although leg room seems a little small.Booking is easy either in person or online. We have booked for three more shows as my partner is a member for which £40 a year is a bargain as it soon pays for itself... More

We attended the matinee performance of Woman in Black at the Curve yesterday. It was our first visit to the Curve. We loved the performance and really enjoyed the whole experience. The actors were amazing and had us on the edge of our seats throughout. Lighting and sound were great and we had a great view from our seats. Would... More
