Lovely little theatre

A lovely time in a small, intimate and well looked after theatre. Lots of things going on and a good space to meet friends.

Our first visit to this small gem of a venue. A superb show. We will be back. Just seen on this website that we could have got reduced priced parking at the NCP - wish someone had mentioned it.

A brilliant performance in a gorgeous theatre. We watched it as part of the Rugby World Cup Festival and double thumbs up to Leicester City and those that made it happen. The performers were fantastic. The chemistry they had on stage made it hard to believe that this was a sample of anonymous theatre. Bravo!!

Lovely little theatre which is beautifully decorated (maybe Victorian or Georgian style?), with an amazing atmosphere and feeling to it. Saw a folk singer here and it was one of the best gigs I've been to. Wonderful balcony, very intimate feeling to the gig. Also serve an excellent range of alcohol and drinks, which aren't overpriced. Perfect venue.

This is a great little theatre. Cosy atmosphere. We went to see a Cabaret event and sat down stairs in the main room. I love this style of seating.

This is a lovely small theatre (I was lucky enough to see one of my all-time musical heroes perform there last Friday!!! Utterly blown away), which is comfortable, whilst being compact and intimate, and didn't feeling at all cramped. Decent seating, nice layout, the queue at the bar did get a little mammoth before the show, and at intervals, and... More

Went to The Y Theatre last week to see the Budapest Cafe Orchestra (who were utterly fantastic, by the way!). It's a lovely, small theatre, quite intimate and cosy and the seating for this particular concert was set out cabaret style which worked really well for this type of concert, although they have seats in rows (on the flat) at...
