My partner and I attended the opening night of "this is my family". I have never been to the theatre before and it was boring as I expected it to be. I think you have to be a certain type of person to enjoy the theatre and I think we are just too common. Anyway the building was very nice... More

My family and I visited to see a show and had a great night out. The only down side was it was very warm in the balcony but the view, bar and location is all great. Acoustic and sound is superb.

Watched the Cleopatra Northern Ballet here with my boyfriend. We loved the theatre- looked vintagey and rich! The performance was fantastic too :) Looking forward to visiting this gorgeous place again soon!

A very old fashioned theatre, but so magical to be there. We went to see a couple of local amateur productions which were amazing. Just loved it, not regular theatregoers but it gave us the feeling to go on a regular basis, we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

I have visited the theatre on several occasions and the place is very average. There is nothing special or welcoming about the place and some of the seats are dreadful. Recently given tickets to a production and had to sit on balcony. I could not see half of the production. Pointless being there.

Wonderful Victorian interior! It was rescued from a dilapidated shell some years ago and now it is much loved part of Sheffield's history!

Good central location near train and bus station View from circle was good but seats too close together which made sitting through a three hour show uncomfortable Drinks expensive but plenty of bars to chose from Orders can be paced for interval drinks Very little seating in the bars

This theatre used to be a favourite of ours (my wife and I), but we now prefer the one in Leeds. However, when we went to see West Side Story, we were not disappointed and will go again. The production was a high standard one and thoroughly engrossing. The stage was well used and props and lighting were not overdone,... More
