But then came the main act "THE REAL... More

First time at the theatre and dispite other comments we found the seats to be comfortable & roomy - we were in the stalls so cannot comment on the circle. We went to see The Counterfeit Sixties show & I must say it was brilliant. The front of house staff were very helpful so no complaints there. We had something... More

This Theatre has been here for many years and is constantly being refurbished but always looks the same when finished! For some reason there is a booking fee for all tickets even if you book and pay at the box office and Pay cash - something even the Top West End Theatres stopped doing a long time ago The seats...

Add it to your To Do list. High quality competitors, mesmerising playing. We do agree, however, about the snack bar... hardly had time to eat as it took so long to get the food. Pity,as the rest of the experience was great.

We went upstairs to the cafe and although it us an ideal place for a coffee as the view is fabulous, opposite the pier which is being repaired. Coffee was served in paper cups and the taste was not impressive. The cafe needs a make over and... More
