I saw this show last Saturday night with two friends. One of my friends loves Frankie Valli so this was the perfect night out for her. We were in the front row and has a great view. "Frankie Valli" was excellent and really sounded like the man himself and the "Four Seasons" were equally good. The guitar, bass player and... More

It is very steep looking down and I was worried with my 1.5 year old clambering everywhere. But this was my bad planning rather than a reflection on the theatre. Peppa pig show... More

The show started a bit strange with random songs then changed to a Grease Medley which was better. Second half was much more entertaining, we love Abba. The singers and band were very good.

An evening spent at this iconic theatre coupled with a meal at a close by restaurant is in deed a special night out. Live theatre is alive and well residing at... More

This theatre lives up to its name - grand. Beautiful theatre. Very little too between seats because of its age and as expected no air conditioning so very warm whilst watching the show.
