Owner description: The landmark Regent Theatre holds a key part in our city’s history since opening as a grand picture palace in 1929. Having survived a fire, a flood, 20 years in darkness and many threats of demolition, the venue reopened in August 1996, meticulously refurbished and returned to its breathtaking former glory.Today it stands more lavish and grand than ever and continues to host some of the world’s most renowned theatre productions.

I recently saw Grease is the Word at the Regent Theatre and it was amazing. I could have walked straight back in to watch it for a second time. The theatre is conveniently located and is very comfortable. They provided a booster seat for my young niece on request so that she was also able to enjoy a good view... More

Recently saw Grease at the Regent, my first musical here and it is just a superb venue. The furniture and ornate ceilings really add to the experience. The chairs are super comfortable and spacious and all the staff seem to really enjoy working here. A great place to enjoy whatever your hobby.

Recently saw Greece at the Regent. Wonderful show in a lovely setting. The seats were comfortable and the bar service was efficient. Loved the atmosphere the theatre created.

The venue is a classic and the two shows we have seen there were super. All the seats were good and the prices are reasonable. A midday matinee is always fun and leaves time for a walk then dinner afterward.

I took my niece to see Grease yesterday afternoon at the Regent. What a great place to see live theatre. The place was beautiful and amenities were very clean. Would definately go back again.

Sitting in this theatre and looking up is amazing. The workmanship and design is beautiful. Some may not like seating as the bottom level isn't tiered. Seats are comfortable and the staff hand out boost pads for kids so they can see. We were in row a at the top dress circle and leg room is tight. I had to... More

Bought tickets to see Grease. The venue is awful? Seats are not tiered and if you have someone in front of you of average height then don't expect to be able to see all the stage.

I have travelled to Broadway in New York 5 times and this theatre rates as the best equalling the Wintergarden in NYC. As per other reviews, it is very spacious and comfortable and the staff were great. I also saw Grease which was amazing. I will be attracted to any shows at the regent purely by the class of the...
