A fantastic venue. There is ample legroom between the rows and the seats very comfortable. Good facilities in terms of toilets, bars and waiting areas between breaks.

A very friendly, modern, comfortable theatre with spacious seating. Looking forward to going to the Pantomime and also to see the Mousetrap later in the year. We are lucky to have the Derngate in Northampton.

Always enjoyed our nights out here, with some very good acts. Favourite so far was definitely the comedian Russell Kane - hilarious! 😊

Have both been in a show and also in the audience here. Enjoyed both times visited both around Christmas time. Went with my mum and sisters who also enjoyed the show. Typical theatre prices for food and drinks.

I had my graduation ceremony here at the start of July. The building inside is wonderful! Could use an update on the outside.
