Came for the first time to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in January. Was a great surprise! The theatre has an excellent layout so that wherever you sit you have a great view of the stage with no worry about your view being blocked by a tall person due to the tiered seating. Outside the waiting areas were decorated incorporating... More

Visited to see chitty chitty bang bang and we were pleased to be able to walk to venue from the city centre in 10 minutes. The seating gives all seats a good view and there were excellent refreshments.

Magnificent performance of Chitty - supremely talented & polished cast - Truly Scrumptious is particularly enchanting & the Baroness faultlessly hilarious. Our group ranged from 8 to 58 & included avid theatre fans (me) & unenthusiastic show avoiders (husband) but without exception we were all wowed - & this feeling was palpable throughout the theatre. Not long left to catch... More

We visited West Yorkshire Playhouse this week to see 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang'. The venue is well sign-posted & there is a large car park right next to the venue. We sat on the front row but I imagine that you would have a good view of the stage from all seats. The show was excellent, as was the cast,... More

Easy to find plenty of parking. You can dine in or start your evening in leeds city centre which is only a short walk. Large lobby and bar area and easy access for all age groups. Good views from most seats from what I could tell and great sound system.

Went to see chitty chitty bang bang, only thing that could have made the play any better would have been if dick van dyke was in it. Great venue I can imagine you would feel close where ever you was sat. Had real memorabilia from the movie. Would definitley watch another show there.

The show was great and had all the favourite songs from the film. The child actors were brilliant. There was dancing, singing, the scary child catcher and yes chitty did fly.
