We went to see the Best of the West End. A very good show and recommend you book early if you are visiting Shanklin - there were only single seats left when we got our tickets the day before the show and we had to sit one behind the other. Very nice theatre.

The audience consisted of about 50 people so not a lot of atmosphere. However, the seats were comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed our half... More

Watched 'Best of the West End', it was fantastic from start to finish. The cast were all excellent but Jack stood out as being a real talent. Jack singing 'Bring him home' was the highlight for me. It was fabulous, funny, entertaining and truly spectacular! Thank you for a great night at the end of our lovely holiday on the... More

We thought it would be a bit of fun on our girls' holiday to see a cheesy show, so booked to see Best of the West End. We did not expect the performance quality we received from what was an IOW company. Amazing performers, all singing and dancing, stunning! Truly west end standard. The theatre was lovely, staff very helpful.... More
