Have been to numerous shows here ... and going to see The Woman in Black shortly. Great venue for all types of shows and they do put on something for everyone, from Shakespeare to Panto! Good value for money, parking nearby and all in all a super theatre.

Four rows from the front with a great view of the stage, I understand from a friend they take out the first two rows as these are restricted viewing so we were actually on row F. If it's a sell out show they add them back... More
