A thoroughly enjoyable experience, albeit a bit pricey on the drinks. The shows that are put together are of top quality. We always look forward to visiting

We had tickets for a show given as Christmas presents. First time at the R & D and thoroughly enjoyed it. Pleasant, helpful staff, spacious auditorium and comfortable seats. Also a couple of pubs/restaurants nearby for before or after show refreshments. Enjoyed it so much we have booked seats for another show later in the year.

We use this amazing theatre a lot. So easy to book online and car parking next door. I went to see Vincent and Flavia dance and was sitting in the first row of the upper circle and had a fantastic view.
