“Wonderful Show”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

We went to see 'Re Take That' a tribute show in the theatre. The show was excellent but our seats were near the front on the left. Our enjoyment was hampered by sound distortion from the huge speakers. In fact some people actually found empty seats further back during the interval. I agree that The Forum has been renovated but I don't think the seats in the theatre have been replaced. Although there was plenty of leg room the seats were uncomfortable as the backs sloped back too far. We noticed seats on the end of rows that are not used as often had straighter backs. Perhaps the popular seats are worn out and need some attention.

“Pantomime, What a drag!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

We what to see this years pantomime Snow White and the seven dwarfs we went last year and it was absolutely amazing!! All of the dances and songs were upbeat and jokes were funny. Well onto this year where to start the jokes were all reused from last year songs were boring and half of the cast couldn't sing including the prince and although Snow White could she was boring after a while and overall it was really a half hearted performance. Well long story short we left in the interval and I don't know what changed this year but they should sort it out as truthfully last year was amazing! So overall a waste of money and time.
