“Panto- Oh! no it isn't. Oh! yes it is.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

A well produced, amateur theatrical presentation of a traditional pantomime. Cast were outstanding, shame there were not enough men to go round, but hey! easy on the eye. Children were word perfect and clear in presentation. On the whole another well performed production.

“Excellent local theatre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Have been to this theatre a few times. Good free parking, nice atmosphere due to its size. There is a bar for drinks/snacks, tea and coffee. Could maybe benefit from a larger choice of snacks when theatre is operating at full capacity. All facilities are excellent. Also they have a good choice of shows for a wide variety of age groups.

“Go at least once and Try it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

Been here a few times and the seatin g plan has been different each time. But it's a nice place with plenty of parking a bar inside selling snacks. Wheelchair friendly though not a lot of room to move once full as bar and waiting areas are narrow.

Last shows seen were comedy shows and bob builder.

“cracking venue shame about the panto”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

We all went to see beauty and the beast here a while back. The venue itself is large enough and should be welcoming more stars but instead the panto itself was terrible with people leaving at the interval.The bar itself is great but ouch the prices were a bit steep.Not quite a derngate but wherever you sit here you do have a very clear view.
