Went to The Y Theatre last week to see the Budapest Cafe Orchestra (who were utterly fantastic, by the way!). It's a lovely, small theatre, quite intimate and cosy and the seating for this particular concert was set out cabaret style which worked really well for this type of concert, although they have seats in rows (on the flat) at...

We were kept waiting to enter the auditorium and then the band were late starting. No explanation nor apology were given. A poor start but things got worse thereafter!

Small, quaint, victorian theatre, hidden away next to the youth hostel in Leicester City centre. Only a step away from the railway station.

The venue has a good bar with a reasonable selection and friendly bar... More

went to see two comedians practising for Edinburgh festival. Small theatre but intimate and friendly. Sat on round tables on ground floor and were able to take in drinks from the bar. Snacks provided on the table along with a candle too
