Been dancing here in shows for the last 13 years, and hasn't changed a bit. Seats in auditorium very cramped and cold, which is strange as the stage is absolutely boiling

There is no leg room whatsoever.We actually went up the back to find some empty seats which had a little room. We were speaking to one of the employees there and he said that... More

The Pacemakers are all new members, but they can do a good tune and play very well. The seats in the theatre are quite cramped, worse than airline seats.!!! There is no air con either and it was uncomfortably warm... More

I recently went to see Gerry & The.Pacemakers at the Britannia Pier theatre. Yes the theatre is a little tired but apart from the Circus is the only remaining theatre out of the many that used to be in Yarmouth. It is still a charming theatre & the sound in there is still good. Such a shame that it is... More

Following on from last years review, i would love more to be going on here, its a wonderful theatre being wasted, with alot of shows tending to be on outside of the holiday season, a great shame for us holiday makers, perhaps not such a bad thing for the locals though :) All in all its a great theatre, with...

Excellent concert at a friendly venue. Drinks at the interval were in lovely setting looking out to sea off the pier.

Cramped extremely low seats. Worn out material. No leg room, and you can't even turn sideways due to the metal structure. Smelly toilets, tatty curtains and old fashioned faded decor. NEVER AGAIN. Outside is just a series of old crappy fairground rides
