When I have previously been to the Playhouse I have always had a seat in the stalls. However for the last night of the pantomime this year I booked seats in the front row of the circle. I assumed these would be good seats with a reasonable amount of space. Unfortunately this was not the case. The seats are very... More

Recently visited The Nottingham Playhouse as a last minute trip to the Panto. In previous years we have gone to the Theatre Royal but this time we wanted to see Sleeping Beauty, which was on at the Playhouse. I booked online no problem on the Sunday and tickets would be held at the box office for the Saturday performance. Parking... More

The Playhouse has been spearheading vital theatre for years, and luckily for us, there's a wonderful bar area that makes you want to sit around for a long time. It's a lovely place to go for coffee off-hours and during the warm weather, it's heavenly sitting outside with the cathedral across the street and the wonderful Sky Mirror sculpture by... More

We visited here not in the main auditorium but another studio. The bar here was very good with a great selection of wines and even featured real ale. Good atmosphere before and after the show with friendly eager staff. There appeared to be an area for meals but we had already eaten. Would definitely visit this place if in the... More
