just got back from beauty and beast pantomime. wow not at all what we expected. This place does not have no where near the grandeur of the old civic hall with decor, size, stage, everything could well have just been in our local sports hall rather than a theatre, thats exactly what it felt like. our tickets stated free coffee...

We attended this amazing show recently. We have never been to this theatre before and were pleasantly surprised. There is an area to wait with a small bar. The show was fantastic we all loved it, as it was very funny and the performers were amazingly talented also. My only niggle is the absence of an ice cream in the... More

I don't often go to Barnsley but, when I do, I always make a point of dropping into The Civic and looking at the exhibitions that they have there and I've never been disappointed.

We went last week to see the Hull Truck Theatres production of Jekyll & Hyde. It was excellent! The cast of three gave an exceptional experience to all the theatre goers. The acting was A1 and I would recommend seeing it to anyone although I would not recommend it to families with children due to the nature of the story.... More

Typical of Barnsley council,s attitude to the arts. This is NOT a Civic Theatre. It is a performance space on the top floor of the building appraoched via a back street! No atmosphere, no facilities. It coculd have been so much better had the council actually listed to the electorate!!

I've been to The Civic a few times this year. To see family shows and live comedy and I have never once been disappointed. The staff are friendly, the bar reasonable and the venue spotless. It's a real shame that events here are often not sold out leading to empty seats. The exception was the performance Jack Dee which was... More
