Excellent theatre choices - prices are average but well worth it.

Will always use this - will not go to another.

“51 shades of maggie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

Went to see this with some mates it was really very funny. It's not for prudes tho. Its sort of based on 50 shades of grey, not sure if you need to read the book to get some of it. I havent but enjoyed the show.

“A delightful throwback in time - gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

Although it suffered severe fire damage years ago and was rebuilt, this fact is easily missed when you are inside the theatre which is like a rewind in time. Staff welcome you on arrival, the auditorium is beautiful and it can be reached on foot from the town's attractions due toits central location in the High Street. There is a good array ofevents throughout the year too.
