“Tell the truth”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

The venue is decent, the sound and views fine, but the staff are often disinterested and dont seem to enjoy telling the truth.
This time around we were contacted by the Theatre to advise (not for the first time) that the dress circle was closed due to HSE issues and we were being moved downstairs. When we arrived we were spun a different tale by staff onsite. Also collecting our rearranged seats almost became farcical, despite the assurances given over the phone the Theatre tried to move us again and denied knowledge of the previous communication. We did sort it but not without having to take a firm approach.
My feeling over the continued closing of the dress circle after issuing tickets well in advance are that when demend is poor they choose to close the dress and upper to save costs etc, to be fair I can understand this, but be HONEST.
Start treating your customers properly.

“Fab venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

We visit this theatre at least twice a year. It has a very grand and traditional feel about it. The parking and access is good and there are plenty of restaurants around the theatre. However the food in the theatre is lovely and I can recommend eating there before a show. We will be going again.

“Good entertainment.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The Hull New Theatre have some very good entertainment, from Live Groups to Weat End Shows. The only complaint I have is that the seats aren't very comfortable.

“Panto”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Took the grandchildren, they really enjoyed it. Have booster seats for the little ones. Plenty to buy if you can afford it, toys relating to theme etc.
