I am a Queens theatre regular, have been for over ten years. Just seen "The Great Gatsby" booked as part of Jump The Queue ticket. I received the usual mail shot inviting me to renew my JTQ subscription and also encouraging me to purchase tickets for children at a special rate. This I did, taking a 12yo and a 15yo... More

I have visited the Queens Theatre, Hornchurch on many occasions and have always had a good time. This review is about the theatre itself and not about any specific production. The theatre is very comfortable to sit in, reasonable leg room in the auditorium and one can see the stage clearly wherever you sit. The resident repertory company are talented... More

We only used the theatre as a place for lunch. The choice of food was very good, service was quick and the eating area very clean and spacious. Staff helpful and didn't rush you. I would say the ideal spot if you want a light lunch rather than fast food outlets or finding a restaurant.

Went to see this with a large group. Was really impressed. Didn't stop laughing all the way through!! Even though there was no great celeb in it I think it made it better. The tickets were priced well and the staff in there were so helpful. I was accompanying a disabled person who's niece was in the show. The children... More

As an ardent supporter of the theatre, I regularly have a drink before a show and an ice cream in the interval. But the Queens Theatre is so much more than that now, with comfortable settees, good food, reasonable prices it is a lovely place to meet friends for a chat and a snack.

This is a great venue. The bar prices are very good and the service is good. The comedy acts are really good, very current. It feels like your in someones front room, very intimate. The prices are very reasonable, i would personally recommend you give it a visit.

Fabulous show tonight, Memories of the Musicals. It was held on the small stage in the Foyer, giving a `Night club` Feeling. The five singers led by the fantastic Kate Milton who proved as well as being a great singer she is also one hell of a dancer, sung just about every top Musical Song, and as Thom who was... More

Treated ourselves to what was reviewed as a laugh out loud comedy, jokes coming thick and fast show, much to our disappointment, the 1st half was quite poor, very little to laugh about, the 2nd half had a bit more comedy, but all in all, i would not agree with the comments advertised with the show. Good props, simple but... More

My wife and I have been regulars at the Queens for more than 20 years. We purchase the 'Jump the Queue' tickets, which is very good value. Most of the shows are first rate and certainly comparable to West-End productions, which is why the Queens has gained professional critical acclaim. The residents of Hornchurch and the surrounding area are lucky... More
