“Back again!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Back for this years WKPF this lovely modern theatre never disappoints! Built on three levels, it is spacious & light, the main auditorium has gallery seating on two sides on the 2nd & 3rd floors, with individual "Executive" style chairs which are really good if you find sitting in row seating difficult (although some of these seats do partially obscure one wing of the stage). Staff are always friendly & helpful, although, we did notice this time that there was a varying amount of attention to ensuring that late-comers didn't disrupt the performances or the viewers enjoyment of them. Buffer doors were left open for long periods which dragged noise in from the atrium (especially noticeable as there was a lot of activity throughout the theatre at the time). The exhibition hall, is perfectly designed for hanging large works of art & the walls of the corridors on the other levels always seem to have local art work on display for sale. The bar was extremely busy when we visited & could have done with a few more staff! The toilets were kept fresh & presentable throughout performances (no mean feat as it was extremely busy!), however the bar-men seem to have difficulty in getting to grips with the fact that female customers may wish to purchase drinks & on three consecutive nights I & other women had to practically jump up down to get served, while the fellas arriving after us got instant attention... While these "niggles" wouldnt discourage us from visiting again, it does detract from the overall rating we are prepared to give the Market Place - sort these out & it would be BRILLIANT!

“Belvoir players”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

We went to see a comedy performed by the Belvoir players at this lovely venue in historic Armagh.
We were able to park nearby, the venue is modern and well laid out. There is a restaurant though we didn't eat in it, it would seem ideal for a pre-show meal.
Ordered drinks for the interval and there was good room to enjoy these.
Seating was comfortable and all seem to give good views of the stage.
The glory of smaller venues such as this is the intimacy between audience and performers.
They have a wide ranging programme of events and we will definitely return

“great theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

went to see a show in this great theatre. the car park outside needs the signs on the ground painted as the one way drive ups are not very clear for someone who hasnt been there b4, so be careful when driving in it. the theater has great seats to view the stage, we were in seat P11 and 12 and they are the best. so if you are not sure what seat this row is good. the show give my head peace wasnt as good as the tv show but would be back for other shows. the price of drinks in the bar are very dear.

“puss in boots”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

loved the show. Took the children and they were ingrossed....only drawback was that it finished too late and the children were totally knackered....but other than that was a great family night out.
