Present for Sunday's (21st Dec) performance of Beauty and the Beast. Nothing better than a traditional panto in a beautiful theatre to take you into the Christmas spirit !. It was wonderful entertainment which the whole family of 6 adults and four children (ages 6 to 12) all thoroughly enjoyed. It's a show of great fun, (and very reasonably priced)... More

What a wonderful theatre, the Staff were super friendly and helpful. Wonderful facilities. Some seats have restricted viewing as is pointed out to you, but even then it doesn't spoil the enjoyment of this fantastic theatre.

This was my second visit to this lovely traditional theatre. I enjoyed both the shows that I saw ( the first being Eliza Carthy, wonderful). The most recent being last night. Billy Mitchell and Ray Laidlow presented a very lively and interesting account of their musical careers as members of Lindisfarne and other groups. It was a great night. I... More

Hi Georgina, Thanks for your review. The Lindisfarne Story was splendid evening and I'm thrilled to read that you enjoyed it. It's great to read that the public transport is adequate, it's helpful that we're just a few moments away from the bus stop. We hope to welcome you again in 2015, our new Spring 2015 has just been announced.... More

Went to see a show here last night. Have been before and I'm still amazed how beautiful it is. The seating is comfortable and you can see the stage easily. That is important to me as I'm a bit short.
