Grand old building, in a lovely spa town. The whole town was very relaxed and easy to navigate. Well worth a visit and some good shows planned.

I had never seen 'Aspects of Love' and I like my musicals so off we went to watch it. Being used to Manchester prices, it was really cheap ... and the cast tried very hard (being kind here). I'd love to go again the venue is lovely!

Fabulous. Traditional venue looked after by a well crafted team of volunteers without whom it would not be able to function. A gem in the crown of Derbyshire.
