What an utter waste of money! Wife and I took our 3yr old son to watch this production and in a nutshell it was absolutely awful, three people wearing combat trousers t-shirts and trainers with the odd token prop to attempt to portray the characters that young children would struggle to identify, particularly having read the original book and seen...

Wonderful venue to sit back and relax with pre-show drinks. The variety of shows is excellent and caters to many varied tastes.

Been several times to see comedy acts and had a very good time, Centrally located, parking can be an issue. The theatre has a spacious foyer and good seating, no bad seats for the view and is small enough to still be intimate.

Grand Children can come in very handy at times, especially when you want to see family (kid) based shows, as going to see kid based shows as two adults could seem alittle odd to some folk, but when you have Grandchildren you can drag them along to all sorts of shows you could'nt just go to see and family shows...

I'm not entirely sure whether it was the nights entertainment or the location but I had a fab night as did the rest of the party, toilets were clean and pleasant and the overall facilities were good too.

I have been using this theatre since it was built. Extensively rebuilt some years ago and with a swanky new entrance, nicely coloured seats but seats still hard as nails for a big chap and no legroom to get your knees together if you are bigger than a midget. Interesting mix of shows, prices sometimes hard to stomach when visiting... More
