“Good! ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

Seen an ELO tribute band here, plenty of seats, which were pretty comfy for a theatre of this type, quite a dated looking place but clean, tidy and nice friendly staff! Plus the bar is pretty cheap!!

I am glad you enjoyed the performance here at the Theatre, the Band are returning here later this year. we are also replacing the seats and having a refurbishment in January 2015, so hopefully it will look better on your next visit.
Many thanks

“Good for the community”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

We are lucky to have a theatre available to us in Cwmbran and although the theatre looks a little tired , the patrons are doing their best to attract a good selection of entertainers at reasonable prices. Currently working to obtain funds to renovate seating etc. I went to see two shows in September and during November I went to see Max Boyce. On each occasion it felt a little cold in the theatre but not a problem as I kept my coat on until the show got going and the room seemed to warm up. I expensive selection of drinks and snacks offered during the intervals and served quickly and efficiently enabling plenty of time to enjoy drink before the show restarts.
