Great venue

Great venue would definitely return! The reduced car parking tickets didn't work which meant it took over an hour to get out after the show, however the venue itself is lovely

An extensive range of plays both old and new across genres there is something for everyone. The sets are amazing and views from all seating are great making you feel part of the production. The Curve undoubtedly challenges any west end production. Accessibility with a multi storey car park next door is ideal, and there is usually a sing along... More

I've never had a bad experience here, the staff are wonderful and the production quality of every show I've attended has always been perfect. I also believe The Curve also does work in the local community which is fab too.

Absolutely fabulous evening at the Curve. Beautiful place, shame about the freezing cold breeze by our feet all the way through BUT eventually forgotten when we polished off more of the decently priced wine 😂😂

God awful! The Holly character, played by Pixie Lott, was all wrong. Painful to watch, and completely unappealing. The other actors were fine, but since most of the play is Pixie, it's unwatchable. We left at intermission. The play was so boring as well. If you are a Pixie fan, I guess you might like it, but she sang only... More

Dear Anne W, Thank you for your review following your recent visit to see Breakfast at Tiffany's. We are sorry you felt disappointed with the production however your feedback is very much appreciated. As with all art forms, theatre is subjective and we acknowledge that not everyone will enjoy every show that we produce, however we have received some fantastic... More

Attended the showing of sister act on our recent holiday - theatre was nice and very easy to find. Had a good selection of drinks etc and staff seemed very helpful. Nice couple of bars very close by for after show drinks!

My sister and I booked tickets a couple of months ago for Sister Act Saturday matinee - but when checking the running time on website two days before we went it said it was a 'relaxed performance' - it was not when we booked it. We did not know what that was until my sister got a relaxed performance leaflet... More

I am not going to review Sister Act here just the venue. The Curve is a very nice venue. It's easy to find, great location for pre theatre meals or drinks. The prices inside the venue are quite expensive but that is expected. During the interlude there is the usual ice cream tubs offered. The seating area is very comfortable... More

You really cannot afford to miss Sister Act . A stylish , slick and extremely entertaining show which surpasses all expectations and is far superior to many West End shows .
