Have visited this lovely little Theatre three times. Enjoying a different genre every time. The seats are comfortable and the staff are very helpful. Nice little bar in the foyer with a cafe upstairs ( have yet to sample the food, but have heard it is very good). One nice little touch is the sale of ice cream during the... More

Obviously, ones option of the theatre is going to be greatly dependant on the show, but that aside I think it is pretty good. Most importantly it gets a lot of top comedians and touring dramas, like Agatha Cristy etc, which I think is impressive for a reasonably small town in North Devon. The seats downstairs don't graduate enough for... More

Have seen some good shows here and the seats are comfortable enough. Last show I saw there was Les Miserables.

This was our second visit this year, as the quality of acts performing here is quite outstanding covering all genres and tastes. There is plenty of legroom, a problem at a lot of smaller theatres,the facilities are also very good with a god bar in the foyer. We will be visiting again soon to catch another wonderful show.

We went to see Les Miserables here recently and it was brilliant. This is a super super theatre. The staff, who are mostly volunteers are friendly and welcoming. They seem to enjoy seeing us having a great night out. The concerts and plays that they have here are of a very high quality. I didn't know there was so much... More

I believe the local theatres in North Devon are run and managed in an extremely good manor, with the likes of the local musical comedy society given the same exposure as the big artists they draw to the area like Lee Evans. Refurbished approx 5 years ago the theatre looks in good shape and is easily accessible via the town... More

Visited here with my sons whole school for free! This was a lovely idea and the children had a ball. The theatre is quite small, but it makes it more interactive with the performers. My first panto experience I must say was brilliant. All singing all dancing and really involved the audience. The theatre was clean, access to toilets easy... More

We have visited here four times since December, for the Pantomime, Avenue Q, Think Floyd and The Circus of Horrors. Our seats gave us an excellent view of all the shows, the shows were all excellent with good sound and performances were outstanding by all. Looking to visit again in the future.

This was our first visit here. We came to see the Show of Hands gig. We like the old theatres as they tend to have a good atmosphere to them and good acoustics. The Queens Theatre is no exception and in addition the seating is comfortable with sufficient leg space and an unobstructed view. The cafe is also pleasant and... More

Worth subscribing to see what's on here - some nice surprises and a great little cafe. Parking in Bear Street is the most convenient place - just a quick walk through to the main road.
