This ames a great evening combined with a meal at Ju Ju's (arrive at 6pm, theatre 7pm onwards). Small 300+ seats with good bar. Selection of plays / operas and musical entertainment all at good price. We went to see the Magic Flute. In warm weather theatre can get quite warm but apart from that makes a good venue. Easy...

I went to see An Inspector Calls in the Main House and the whole experience was fantastic! The theatre is small so gives a very intimate feel and the sightlines are excellent! The prices for ice-creams are also very reasonable and programmes only cost £1! I DEFINITELY wouldn't hesitate to come back to this theatre again!

A fantastic performance by Bournville Musical Theatre such a funny show. They all put so much effort and energy into the show, fantastic dancing, singing and acting. I was standing and applauding at the end, They put on such a professional production, excellent sound, lights and a live orchestra, we had a fantastic evening - this theatre company is definitely...

A lovely intimate venue. I went to see a midsummer's nights dream with my family and it was lovely. Every one was really friendly. Lots of stairs though!

Last night we went to an excellent guitar concert in the smaller theatre downstairs and had a very enjoyable evening. This is a very cosy theatre with friendly, helpful staff that shows a range of theatrical shows from the resident company as well as outside bookings. The bar upstairs is comfortable and the barman was very welcoming. Definitely worth going... More

With a group of friends we attended the Irish Night here on the 1st of March. It was an excellent evening of first rate entertainment. The theatre is small but this makes for a very intimate atmosphere, we were so close to the stage we were nearly in the show! The staff were very friendly though I thought the ice... More

We went to the theatre to see 'Irish night' this was an excellent show marred by the amount of people who could not be bothered to take their seats before the show started, some of the audience even arrived ten to fifteen minutes after the show started which meant that the whole audience was distracted by people standing up, it...

Because it caters for amateur groups...don't assume the quality will be any less than productions by professional companies. What they do provide is a wonderful array of choice...at bargain prices. Perhaps they don't have to worry about bums on seats and choose to perform what they want. Watch out for the Sunday matinee productions at £8. Ideal for the" lives... More

Just visited to see Elixir of Love, which was excellent. Comfortable seats and a good view of the stage, even from our seats on the far edge of a row. Parking is very close and, by getting a card from the box office, there is a reduced charge. The only down side for me was the lack of decaf coffee... More
