I noticed this on TripAdvisor and as we were on holiday in Malvern anyway we thought we'd pop in. Run by a charming gent who told us all about the history of the theatre, and how he converted it from a toilet it made an interesting diversion from a wet day outside. He then proceeded to perform a puppet show... More

Now we were all on holiday in Great Malvern, with my extended family that is and we decided to do some sightseeing. On a previous occasion my sister had paid a visit to this quaint little theatre but her reviews were all pretty negative. Still I decided to pop in. We were welcomed by a charming gentlemen and quickly seated... More

Quaint, quirky and exceptional. This an experience that you just can't get anywhere else in the World. This alone would make any visit to Malvern worthwhile - and there's a lot to see and do in Malvern! It's now award-winning, but don't let that put you off. If you can afford £3, (which is the price of a cup of... More

Hidden away just round the corner from the top end of the high street is an amazing experience. A Victorian gentlemen's convenience has been converted into a mini theatre which puts on performances on demand lasting 5 to 6 minutes. The fixtures and fittings are all reclaimed and the cost more than worth the £3 per adult. The performance we... More

This little theatre is a must do visit for adults and children. It's magical and you feel you've been transformed to another place and time for 10 minutes. Highly recommended. We are so lucky in Malvern to have such a quirky place for visitors to enjoy.

Dennis the owner is well known in Malvern.His theatre seats a max of 10 or so, if I recall correctly.He changes themes according to the season.Our visit was about Christmas and quite entertaining. Well worth the visit, and the cheap entry fee compared to the main theatre... More

Open only in the summer months, this converted public convenience holds the distinction of being the world's smallest theatre putting on short and very surreal animated shows that will delight both adults and children. It's like being inside Terry Gilliam's head! Too mad to miss.

Take no notice of the miserable dissenter. This theatre is a joy and we call in every time we visit Malvern. Have just seen this year's Christmas special which was just as good as last year's (and the year before!). It's odd, enchanting and truly unique. Maximum capacity is twelve and it's all over in about 15 minutes -- but... More
