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.

Theatre seems a little tired in appearance but the seating is good and the performance was started and finished on time. Pleasant staff.

This is a very atmospheric place to go for an evening out, The shows are spectacular and there is a wide choice of shows to watch from the Pantomime to musicals & celebrity appearances. Ticket bookings are easy to make on line and the service is very quick.

We are so lucky to have 3 x theatres in our fantastic city. I'm not usually a ballet fan but the Russian Ballet Company of Siberia put on an amazing show. The principal dancers were superb and the atmosphere was lovely.

Booked tickets online for Matthew Bourne's Edward Scissorhands, unfortunately as setting out realised I had booked for afternoon and not evening. Rang and was told to come and bring tickets. On arrival was given seats at no extra cost. Staff could not have been more obliging. I have difficulty with seats as I need extra leg room and usually have... More

On the stage was good entertainment but what added to our night out was the whole atmosphere. Good fun with our party of friends
