Last night of our short stay break, met up with friends to see the Rocking With Laughter Show, we had a great time, rounded off our holiday before saying goodbye to Torbay. Will definitely be looking up the shows next time we are in town. Staff were great, atmosphere friendly and we loved it. See you again soon!
