Saw No Man's Land on Saturday 26 August 2016. Booked front row seats as a treat for my sister's birthday. Very hot evening, glad I hadn't booked Dress Circle or higher. Had trouble finding the bar with the balcony overlooking the street, a long queue for drinks. Staff were quick to attend to man taken ill after the show.

Attractive historic theatre. Went to see No Man's Land - great acting as anticipated but very dull Harold Pinter play. The venue on a summer evening was far too hot, despite wearing a t-shirt and light trousers

Seen a number of shows here and live the old setting of the theatre it really adds to the experience. Saw No Man's Land which was quite simply brilliant. Yes it was very hot but did receive an email warning of this and water was provided. Not sure how you would address this with a building of this age. Would... More

I love this historic old theatre. We've seen some great actors here over the years so the chance to see Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart in No Man's Land was not to be missed (though we nearly did as it was almost sold out when I booked). We got several emails from the theatre management in the days before the... More

This is a lovely little theatre that puts on some really great productions. I have seen Under Milk Wood, Tosca, The Father and last night I saw No Man's Land. All have been brilliant. However, last night was very hot and they weren't able to keep the aircon on without drowning out the actors, meaning everyone was roasting! Apart from... More

Visited here for a packed out matinee performance. It was really hot weather and this poor theatre just couldn't cope. I spotted a mobile air conditioning unit in the foyer but there was nothing in the auditorium itself and I'm surprised no one passed out as it was so so hot . Not ideal for an elderly audience. Seats have... More

I visited the Theatre Royal for a show with Sir Ian McKellan and Patrick Stewart both acting, so what I got was a very well acted performance. All the staff were very good, friendly and polite. The ticket value was also good, the only thing that let the experience down was the temperature. As its an old Theatre, they do... More

We visited this theatre yesterday (24th August). Admitedly we are having a heat wave but the theatre has no air conditioning. As a apology they were offering free cold water. A poor attempt to this shortcoming they had installed some basic form of cooling that was ineffective AND made the other theatre feature worse, namely sound. The theatre has no... More

No Man's Land was brilliant but the whole experience was undermined by incredibly high temperatures in the Royal Circle which meant sweat was poring off me by the end of the show. By the end I was feeling in a real state due to the extreme heat and complete lack of cool air. Even if I had been wearing just... More
