Leicester's premier theatre. Great for either family days/nights out or a night out with friends. Good for meeting for a drink. Some good shows. Easy to get to as in centre of the city.

Excellent if a little over long play about what might happen to the Monarchy on the death of the Queen. The curious way of speaking evokes the Shakespearean Iambic pentameter, occasionally throwing in some archaic words to fit. The theatre as always is an excellent place to stage plays and musicals but there are afew problems with the structure despite... More

I recently booked tickets at curve as l have on numerous occasions but we were given tickets on rows bb and couldn't see hardly anything. I informed the manager and the problem has been sorted (a refund) but I recommend that people don't pick these seats as you'll struggle to see the production

I went to the Curve Theatre for the first in January to see the play King Charles the third. I have to say that the whole experience was wonderful and Brendan Powell excelled in his role as Charles. Will definitely be returning.

Curve really offer something for all age groups. I have also been involved in shows there through Curve's Community productions (open auditions) which was a fantastic experience and really... More

Curve is Leicester's theatre situated in the cultural quarter and is a modern, very comfortable theatre, not a bad seat in the house! The play - King Charles III did not disappoint, very thought provoking and full of the unexpected.
