“Gilbert and Sullivan Festival”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

Pure coincidence we stayed in Harrogate only to find out the festival was on. Attended the performance last night of Iolanthe. What an amazing theatre, beautifully recently completely renovated. A lucky find purely by chance.

“Rather warm feeling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

This theatre is beautiful with great acoustics for words and music.Friendly staff and a slick bar service before shows and during the interval allows one to enjoy the show. Only downside we encountered was the heat on a warm summer night. Do not dress up under these conditions; just keep cool and casual. A great place

“Lovely Theatre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Newly refurbished it is a joy to see the interior of this superb Theatre. A lift (and there are even a couple of chairs in it!!) takes you up to the Circle. The only drawback was the queue for the ice creams at the interval, but the Gilbert & Sullivan International Festival could, I hope, have found itself a wonderful new home. Buxton's loss is definitely Harrogate's gain.
