“"Our Favourite"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

If you get a chance go to this Theatre it has everything to make it a great experience. It's easy to get to, Loads of free parking, and easy access. The stage and auditorium creates an amazing intimacy between the Actors and audience and what could be better than interval drinks in the park on a warm Summer evening. Pure bliss darling.

“I miss the big tent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

I have recently seen Barnum and Neville's Island in the big tent and both were fantastic, especially Neville's Island, which I would see again but alas the big tent is no more and we must now wait until the builders have completed their work before the Festival Theatre proper reopens next year.

It just proves that the show can go on even if a theatre is closed for renovations. Well done to the imagination of all those who came up with the 'big tent' idea and those who made it happen.

“Theatre on the park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

A fabulous idea while the theatre is being undated just to be able to go to the theatre was great. Great atmosphere and just as good as being in the real theatre.

“Fantastic theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We visit the theatre as many times as possible during the excellent summer festival season and rarely see a production in which we are disappointed.

“Fab fab tent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

From entering the park, staff were on hand to welcome - so easy to find our seats and get settled. "Neville's Island" was SO good from the start to finish, amazing scenery and so funny!
Interval drinks were chaotic, no-one seemed able to find theirs - but the only minus.
Coming out the lit walkway was magical - the refurbed main house has a lot to live up to - keep these new staff, they are a credit!
