“Canon Hill Park and MAC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Very nice park to walk around as it's well looked after. Lots of nature - saw 3 herons, squirrels, birds etc. Would make an ideal location for a short bike ride. The food at the MAC is very nice.

“Mark Thomas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Brilliant, Mark Thomas was witty, funny and whimsical. He had me laughing outloud one minute and emotional the next. I thank him for sharing his moving tribute to his father, and turning it into an entertaning and powerful piece of theatre.

A great place to go and watch a production, good onsite facilities and the atmosphere is nice. Plenty of parking and right by cannon hill park if you want a wander before or after. Also by the nature centre.
