Good central location, plenty of local parking / walking distance from train station. Great seating arrangement no craning neck to see around people in front!

For a small town , the Queen's Theatre puts on some interesting and varied productions. Compared to the ticket prices which we are used to paying, it is very reasonably priced

When this theatre was re-designed a few years ago they had the pathetic idea of putting the bar in the foyer. It gets so overcrowded and because it is expensive many visit the pub opposite. The seating is tired and there is No Middle Aisle!

This is North Devon so obviously it isn't going to be super-wish as per London or other international cities. But it is nice and they do have a good range of shows. Recommended.

This Theatre is getting very tired, and could do with a face lift,the seats had there coverings torn and the whole place needs a clean, there was chewing gum on the back of the seat facing my wife, the lady taking our tickets didn't seem to know where the seats were.

The atmosphere was excellent with plenty of standing and singing along with a real party feel.... More

Clean, lots of leg room, very comfy seats and friendly staff. There were several shows we would like to have seen during our two week stay but the tickets were slightly pricey for a provincial theatre so we just went to one. That being said the show we saw was a very good show.
