The theatre was clean and tidy,staff were pleasant and knew their stuff. It was quite warm inside,to be expected though. Our seats were really good,right in the middle. The bar was busy but the staff coped well and it was reasonably priced for a seaside resort. My only small moan was the small gap between rows of seats

Went to see Jimmy Carr here end of August 2015. Lucky not very tall- the seats we were in (row G) did not have much legroom. When people wanted to get in the row people were actually all vacating the row to let people in, so you can tell that rows were narrow, so if possible I'd recommend asking for... More

I recommend visiting just for the ice cream alone. Lovely chap who served us too. Pier was great, lots for kids to do and see. Arcades and sweets galore. Beach is lovely. Area in general is great. Highly recommended.

Great pier with lots to do rain or shine and for the drinkers there is a bar/pub at the end of the pier and for young ones there are some rides at the back also. Photo taken in the dark of the pier

A nice pier to walk along with arcaded and grab machines, gift and rock shops with other souvenirs, fish and chippy where you can eat in or out and had plenty of seats. Also has a theatre on the pier with great entertainment. Second week in August Jim Davidson, chuckle brothers, Joe pasquale and a Frozen show were all available.... More

Plenty of food outlets on here and amusements to keep you entertained. Really nice walk on a sunny day. Didn't have time to see any of the entertainment there however they seem to have a good selection of shows.

So many seaside theatres around the country have quite frankly a pathetic choice of entertainment in what should be their busiest time of year but this is some Great Yarmouth seem to excel in year in year out with a good choice of shows to see for all ages. On a 4 night break there was a show on each... More

First time visiting the Theatre and definitely hooked. The wife and I went to watch Jim Davidson. The building is as you would expect traditional sea side pier. The staff were friendly and helpful. Seating a bit small for a 20 stone 6ft 2 bloke,however comfy. The adjoining show bar serves a great variety of drink. The staff were extremely... More
