Fairly good.

Went to see Rhythm of the Dance in November 2014, the sound wasn't great at all times but over all it's a good venue.

Excellent theatre .I visit often and would do more often if there were more acts or shows that I would like to see .I receive the brochure when printed and find the selection of shows better in some than others In a short review it is difficult to explain but I find the choice not top class at times ....

It seems to be that the Forum mainly caters for irish patrons, there are a lot of other nationalities that would enjoy going to the theatre, so some alternative shows would be good.

Brilliant value £20... More

We attended the homegrown showcase and thought we would go for dinner before hand. There is a restaurant within in the forum which is amazing. at the interval of the show we went back to our table which was neatly laid out with plenty of crackers, cheese wine and our desserts, which we enjoyed thoroughly, a great place for all...

I went with a group of people to see the Millennium Forum's retelling of Peter Pan. It was hilarious! The actors were fantastic and the costumes and sets were impressive for such a little venue. You will most certainly get a good show here.
