This was a great show performed by the coop juniors theatre company. Its a lovely little theatre, and the seating is tiered so every one has good viewing

On the 23/7/15, I went with my wife and friend to see a performance of West Side Story by the Children s Theatre Company. The show was really terrific, with minimum scenery and had me gripped from the start. What talent there was on stage! Well done to all concerned. We preordered interval drinks which helped avoid the usual bunfight... More

What a wonderful little theatre this is and quite a surprise as the outside does not do justice to the inside. Have been to see two productions fairly recently which I thoroughly enjoyed. The seating is very well designed and laid out so that wherever you sit, you get a good view as the seating is tiered in a horseshoe... More

Good wheelchair access with dedicated spaces for them and also very close disabled parking. Nice coffee shop with comfortable seating. Very varied programme including productions by local groups. We saw Phantom Of The Opera by The Co-op Juniors which got... More

First, it is a great venue. Intimate and not a bad seat in the house. Second the production was fab. It's amazing to see such young talent perform so brilliantly. No it's not the west end but I'm sure some of this talent is on their way.

I found the show alright and so did the kids. But some of the staff were bad. I will not go again. I think family's might enjoy it and some not.

Thank you so much for being such a regular visitor to us! We'd love to have a bigger cafe bar too...we should take that up with the architect. I hope we'll welcome you to our autumn season too. More
