Lovely theatre , tastefully decorated ... Latest visit was to watch the best of the west end ... Most enjoyable ... Loved all the performances , very well put together. Only thing I would mention is perhaps more toilet facilities would be good. Overall, we love coming to this theatre.

Went to see "The best of the West End" at the theatre on 21/8/2014. Two hours of absolutely brilliant musical theatre (as to be expected from this company). Great accompaniment from the 4 piece band,

We saw the Best of the West End Show at this Theatre. It was a great show and a full house on the evening we visited. Staff very friendly and helpful. Seating wasn't bad, just a shame it wasn't tiered as you could see a bit more comfortably. A tip I would offer is to get to the theatre early... More

Check what's on before you stay. We were disappointed that we had missed a show when we were there as we hadn't checked what was on.

Also we attended the Thursday Best of The West End show on Thursday 7th. August, and again we were very very impressed with this show

Wife's birthday so thought it would be fun to go along. Show was not suitable for young children, I cringed a lot as the story line deteriorated towards profanity and just stopped short. An average score as it became an amusing talking point with another couple who went with us. The ice cream was excellent and not over priced. People... More

Expected an amateur show and really enjoyed a top class performance from the whole cast. Very fast moving considering they had costume changes scenery changes which is all done by the cast. Friendly welcome from the foyer volunteers.
