My mum and I went to the Hazlitt to see The Vicar Of Dibley at the end of July and had a great time. The seats were a little difficult for me to sit in as I have quite long legs so if you are tall, try to get an aisle seat or the front row in one of the... More

Been going to this theatre for a number of years. Yesterday my daughters had a dance show - the lighting and sound have improved, but the air conditioning is pretty dire.....It was baking hot yesterday and talking to the girls its even hotter on and back stage.... The price of ticket is more than £12 per head, I guess one... More

This is a nice theatre to see a show, perhaps a little run down, but it is old. Can fit quite a few people in when busy. I've seen a few plays here by the Willington Players which I'd recommend anyone to go and see!

We have watched several charity plays and have found the Hazlitt very welcoming and friendly. The bar is a reasonable size but disappointingly all drinks are served in plastic glasses. The acoustics are good and it has a family feel to it.

I have been to see a couple of shows here recently. They have a range of good quality acts on here, and it's a small venue so you get a fairly view of the stage from pretty much anywhere. BUT the seats are so cramped - I'm only 5 foot 6 and my knees were pressed uncomfortably into the back... More

Came to see the Christmas panto with the family, nice small venue with comfy seats, they have given the place a makeover & looks good, bar area is now improved, toilets get busy at intervals as you would expect

Went here to see Snow White just before Christmas, was a brilliant show very entertaining cast and performance. Took our 3 year old and he enjoyed it! The checking of tickets system is a bit of a free for all as the back log blocks the whole walk way. Seats are rather uncomfortable but as expected. Staff are friendly. Bar... More

I had my 30th birthday party in the Exchange Studio, I booked it a year and a half in advance to make sure everything was perfect. As well as the Exchange Studio, I asked for the 4th Wall which is another room off the studio that was going to be used for an indoor bouncy castle. Everything was booked and... More
