“Poor seating in the stalls”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

The venue has not changed for years and years. The theatre is now showing its age. It is shabby in place e.g cramped seats in the stalls packed in like sardines. If some one wants to get past you; half the row has to go into the aisle. Drinks are very expensive. The seats in the circle and gods are better. The Ken Dodd show was excellent again. It was value for money.

“Lovely venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

We saw Ken Dodd here. This is a lovely venue with very modern facilities but lots of original period features.

The seats were really comfortable with lots of leg room - a good job because Ken Dodd doesn't know when to go home!

“Concert Venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Good place for school concerts and similar smaller type performances. The bar is over-priced and not very attractive or comfortable. Ok for a pre-show drink and they let you take plastic glasses inside with you. The seats are comfortable enough.

“Bit more leg room would be 5 stars”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We have been to see dance acts & comedians at this venue & it has good facilities & excellent staff. I know they want maximum capacity but in the middle of the stalls it is all very close & lots of people struggle to even get to their seats especially when you have to get past people.
