Went mid March. Saw Fleetwood Mac tribute band. Sound quality was good. View pretty good but wish we'd booked a bit lower down. The seats are steep which does help with the view. Surprised about comments with leg room as I'm 6'2" and a fidgeter but was absolutely fine. Only criticism is that they serve drinks in glasses and you... More

I love opera and the rare chance to see it live at a local theatre was treat full of anticipation. As it turned out the production of La Boheme was average although the singing was a delight. However the seating at this theatre was so uncomfortable I cannot advise anyone to go there to see any production unless of course... More

I've used this theatre quite a few times and highly recommend. The seats are positioned well an wherever you sit you have a good view. Latest show was Barnum this weekend and it was a fantastic show, looking forward to my next visit in May.

We went to see Barnum with Brian Conley at the matinee this afternoon. It was a stupendous show, and up there with the best I have ever seen - and I have seen a lot. We are so lucky to have such a brilliant theatre attracting such productions in Norwich.

Saw Edward Scissorhands with my sister and we loved it! We were in the 3rd row stalls so had the perfect view and tickets were reasonably priced! Comfy seats and really helpful staff. Drinks and sweets are overpriced but seems the standard at theatres!

The bar area was attractive & staff helpful. However, we didn't rate the theatre. We are not local people so didn't know the theatre seating layout. Booking at last minute we could only get seats in upper circle halfway back. The production 'the absence of war' was impossible to hear from this vantage. The first half was almost impossible to...

A thoroughly entertaining show which had a mixture of the movie with live characters of Elsa & Anna. Lots of humour, interaction, and singing for the children with all audience members receiving a goodie bag for participating. It even snowed inside, well done all.

This theatre is always bazzing. I've seen Micheal Jackson, Queen to The Russian ballet within a matter of 6months. They are always friendly and the punters are a eclectic bunch so no one should feel awkward.
