The coffee and tea are reasonably priced and served promptly. Also a card is available to collect stamps towards a free hot drink. Nice place to have a quick pick me up!

We have always loved the Wolsey, especially the yearly pantomime - though I now live too far away to visit often, I just purchased a gift voucher for a relative so they can enjoy the theatre more. The service was easy to use and excellent, and an advisor was instantly available for me to check the details via the chat... More

My daughter (early primary school age) loves coming to the theatre, she always enjoys the shows, and the prices of the shows are not too expensive, they are even bearable for adults! Only complaint is that the refreshments are a little pricey, and there are no shows for kids in August!

We went to see Oliver at the New Wolsey Theatre, we had book our tickets on-line several weeks earlier and we were able to print them off ourselves, this was a plus for us as we didn't have to keep looking out for the postman wondering if they would arrive in time, We have seen several performances of Oliver by...

Went to see Oliver and wow what a fantastic performance. The players with special mention to Nancy - what an amazing voice - Fagin - Oliver and the Dodger - were brilliant and every bit as good as the London show. The Wolsey Theatre has great seats with completely unobstructed views and fantastic sound quality .... The PA played thunder... More

We saw the excellent musical Tom - the story of Tom Jones . West End standard performances in a theatre where the cost is reasonable and every seat is a good one! We regularly travel at great cost to the West End for musical theatre. With performances of this standard I wonder why we bother!
