A thespian relative of mine lives locally and we travel from Hertfordshire to attend the theatre at least once yearly to support and enjoy. Supported by an excellent group of volunteers, the Theatre has a wonderful and prestigious heritage. Our recent visit to see The Full Monty was just as enjoyable as our first experience a few years ago. Always... More

Thank you for this lovely review. So pleased that your long trips to the theatre have been worthwhile. We should also acknowledge the Leicester Operatic Players/LOPs the visiting musical society who put on the production of The Full Monty that you enjoyed so much. We look forward to seeing you again during our 2016/17 season! More

A great trip out to see this Panto. This was enjoyed by all that went of different ages. Would go again. The seats were good although the interval food etc were a bit expensive. Park early over the road.

My wife & I recently went to the Little Theatre to see The Music Hall Tavern show, we'd seen them in Lanzarote last year & knew they were doing a tour of England & Ireland early this year so we booked tickets for the Little Theatre as it was the nearest on to where we live. When we got inside... More

Saturday night we visited the Little Theatre in Leicester to see a production of Rope. It was a great night out. The bar is a very nice place to drink & relax before heading up the stairs to the auditorium. There is a nice atmosphere in there , something bigger places don' t have. Rope is a great film &...

Small, very friendly theatre. The production of Aladin was brilliant, lots of adult humour but still child friendly. Costumes were a surprise to me being it's amateur dramatics... Have to say we were really impressed. Well done little theatre

It is small and quite cramped if you are a lightly larger person but is a really nice atmospheric old theatre. The plays out on here are always excellent.

This was our third visit and although the performance was excellent (the ladykillers), I found people in the audience totally rude and arrogant! It's such a shame as it is such a lovely and small venue but at the interval we stood in the foyer and got shoved out of the way on three occasions without so much as a... More
