We went to see David Baddiel's one man show about his family and laughed from 'start' to 'finish'. It was the main thing we came down to London to see and we were not disappointed. If you have a family member with dementia then you...More

Terrific show - laughed out loud for two hours. Genuinely funny in a raw yet poignant way. I had never heard of David Beddiel before we took a chance on this one-man show, and so glad we did. If you're a bit of a prude,...More

Saw David Baddiel: My Family here, which was a great show. Venue is well run, and cosy feeling due to fairly small size.

A lovely traditional theatre. I was very pleased with our seats. We were in the Dress Circle seats F6 and F7. Good view and on an isle. We had enough leg room (my son is 6'), however further along our row, near the wall, I...More

There is no leg room for anybody over 6ft and because it was a school play part of the GCSE, it was full of kids that didn't sit still or stop talking through the whole show my view was really restricted although it never said...More

This was just an epic show. The acting was fantastic and the set and special effects superb. The play kept up a great pace - a testament to which was that the 100s of schoolchildren attending the night we were there managed to stay away...More

Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized
lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is

well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Is the front row (row A) of the Upper Circle really very restricted view? I'm looking at seats 18 & 19 and wondering if it's just the pole across the balcony and if that's really much of an issue. Thanks in advance!

Yes it was quite restricted - with restricted leg room and the rail - it didn't spoil our experience just wouldn't choose to sit there again.
What is actually the "official" site to buy tickets. I can't seem to find how you can get tickets at face value- those who say they are official clearly are not.
