we used to be regular attenders here going to every show but finally stopped going because they sell sweets before the show and opatrons were constantly disturbed by people opening crackley sweet bags during the performance.So sadly they lost four regular patrons.i did complain but they askedif i was serious.

I have seen many memorable performances at this little venue. Essentially the home of Leicester's amateur theatrical group it offers a range of classic plays, new material, music and comedy in an auditorium where I don't think there is a bad view. Prices are reasonable and the enthusiastic front or house staff help to make every event memorable. It also... More

Staying in Leicester whilst working in the area I visited the Little Theatre to see Joe Ortons "What the Butler Saw". Couldn't believe it's run by non-professionals (you can't call them amateurs)! Fantastic performances and a nice friendly "little theatre". Well worth a visit, whatever they are performing.

Can't believe that I've lived in Leicester all of my life and never been to this theatre before. I found the whole experience wonderful. The car park is directly opposite the theatre with a cost of £2 for the whole evening. The bar was well staffed thus no queues (something my husband hates when we go to the curve), the... More

The varity of plays and visting company,s seen at the little Theatre are above average and the acting of the in house company puts some full timre companys to shame.

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
