Went to Hindle Wakes in Theatre-in-the-Round and it was just brilliant, as all the theatre productions at the Dukes are. The seating is all around the centre which enable the audience to feel part of the performance. Can recommend this experience.

I came to see a play here and was simply stunned - the location is great and the play brilliant. Can't wait for the next play.

Go and watch this fab production! Really entertaining for young and old. Truly magical and funny. Its aimed at 5+ years and for boys and girls alike. Its not pink and princessy at all and a real gem. Younger kids were still amazed and entertained, but the story might be a bit lost on them. Its shown in 'the rake'... More

Sadly, the Dukes do not provide live theatre all that often, but when they do it is excellent, they are a producing theatre and they should do more of it. The sound and sight lines are first class, The auditoria are both comfortable and the in the round has an intimate feel to it!

We booked to see A Farewell to Arms at a Wednesday matinee but were informed that part of the ceiling had fallen down on Monday evening and the performance had been cancelled along with the Tuesday and Wednesday performances. Fortunately they put an extra matinee on for Friday afternoon so we were able to attend. It was presented in a... More

Saw Farewell to Arms last weekend. A fascinating multi-media experience of a play that really engaged the audience in the small auditorium. Seats well raked, so nobody moaned about sitting behind me (I'm two metres tall). The theatre was well suited to an intimate production where you felt you eavesdropping on the cast as they did their own thing, filming... More

The Dukes has been established many years and is liked for its varied program of events including some interesting plays by visiting Theatre groups and musical events. Busy bar and friendly atmosphere. Just opposite Pizza Margherita Restaurant -a busy good value Italian Restaurant - excellent for a pre-theatre meal.

Last night I went to see Hansel and Gretel performed in Lancaster's Williamson Park - live promenade theatre with Morecambe Bay as the backdrop....It was a truly magical experience and I would thoroughly recommend it if you happen to be visiting Lancaster between early July and mid August - next year the Dukes is putting on Oliver Twist. The play... More
