One of the most emotionally charged theatre experiences I have ever had! Quite why it took me so long to see this wonderful show, I have no idea, but the production at Wimbledon Theatre was truly outstanding. The ovation at the end was fully justified...More

Had a great experience yesterday seeing The Band. Polite, helpful staff. Great seats which were quite comfortable and easy to find. Unfortunately the toilets are tiny but adequate. Be prepared to pay for overpriced drinks but then that’s to be expected.

Saw the show The Band at the New Wimbledon Theatre yesterday. The show was great. The theatre is easy to find on the high street and was easy to get into even though there were large queues of people to get in. Seats were comfortable.

Depends on size of child. You can hire a seat there or take a booster seat style in with you. I used to take a booster in for my daughter and she was fine.

New Wimbledon Theatre Ettiquette (7 Replies)
During my upcoming trip, I would be headed to New Wimbledon Theatre to see Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake. It would be a weekend afternoon show. I occasionally see Ballet and Orchestral Performances in Singapore, so at the very basic I would be not be ignoranty enough to wear shorts and flipflops or talk during the performance… but I was just wondering if there is any further etiquette and rules I need to be aware of. It would be first time ever seeing a performance in London, and hence am...More

Lunch near New Wimbledon Theatre (13 Replies)
Can anyone suggest a good eaterie for lunch very close to the New Wimbledon Theatre where we could take my 90 year old father next week? It needs to be within a five minute walk from the theatre for him. To be honest if there was a chain like Café Rouge or Bella Italia close by we'd be happy to go there, but the nearest is half a mile away and we are a group of 6, so don't want to faff about in taxis . He is not keen on spicy food or pizza! Any ideas gratefully received.

I would suggest that you try and book wherever you decide to go so that you can guarantee a table. I decided to pop into Pizza Express back in April before going to the NWT but then so did many many other people who were also on their way to the theatre. I didn't bother to queue as I knew that I would never get in and out in time.
