Went to see local lad made good Michael Palin. The seating is excellent. I imagine the views are great irrespective of the seat position. The staff clearly enjoy working there as they were all very friendly and helpful. Support your local theatre! It makes for a great night out.

Fantastic entrance along coal shaft into a simple stage layout with the audience sitting in armchairs and sofas at stage level. The 3 actor characters performed superbly amongst brilliant special effects. Well done to all
