We visited the Winter Gardens to see Dirty Dancing. The show was fantastic and I would definitely see it again. This is a lovely venue. The staff were very friendly and helpful especially in the Box Office. It was nice that there were bars in the venue to relax before and after the show Highly recommend

I consider myself extremely lucky to live so close to such a fabulous place. The years of work that have been undertaken to restore it have been used wisely.

The show and cast was great, well worth going to see, drinks a little expensive as they always are in these places. The venue itself is amazing old building and very nice tea rooms and other attractions.
