Went with a little aprehension as not a big fan of musicals on arrival thought the worst as a lot of "mature" regulars in attendance But these fears were totally unfounded and what a brilliant fun night we had Excellent performances and great voices was expecting the saucy themes but so funny Great atmosphere and will visit this gem again

It's like stepping into an old style theatre with its beautiful charm. Staff are very friendly and the productions are very professional

We have seen the last five pantos at The Little Theatre and all have been very good, but this year's excelled itself. Fabulous costumes, lots of audience participation and some great jokes. Brilliant cast. This is a lovely little theatre. A real asset to the city.

This venue is excellent with an intimate atmosphere in the performance area and first class service in the foyer and bar. Parking is opposite as well as train and buses close by so the situation is good too

Recently moved to Leicester and have attended two shows at the Little Theatre. Such a nice experience with fairly-priced bar and excellent service. Performances also great. Would highly recommend.

We (my wife and I) have been going to the Little Theatre for roughly the last ten years. We buy season tickets, so we see their entire repertoire, including some plays we would never have chosen to see along with many that we would. The quality is always, at least, very good - sometimes superb, The venue is modern, comfortable,... More

A superb venue, centrally located, opposite a car park.The bar is lovely, with super staff. What a shame that the shows aren't always up to the standard of the venue, not their fault!

This is a wonderful venue. The place is just filled with fantastic staff, and an incredibly hard working cast. The plays are just great pieces of entertainment. I can not speak highly enough of how good this place is.

A Taste of Honey at the Little Theatre, Leicester for the best of amateur drama "A Taste of Honey" may be a classic play from the 1950's, but this week's amateur production in the Little Theatre replaces the nostalgia for Northern realism, with a modern, moving and bittersweet portrayal of survival in the face of a cruel failure of motherhood....

Already booked for 2014 Puss in Boots Pantomine, wonderful place worth a visit and your support. Easy to find, plenty of parking. Actors/resses, costumes, professionalism second to none. A great family place.
