We caught the Supertram from Meadowhall to Sheffield. Good service. We looked around the Peace Building, very interesting exhibitions. We saw the Three Muscateers Ballet performed by the Northern Ballet, very good. The Lyceum is a beautiful old theatre.

We sat up in the gods and leg room is quite good. View of the stage is also very good. Seats very comfortable. Bar at each level. Free cloakroom for bags and coats.

This is a fabulous venue that is seeped in history. Comfortable seats and a great views of the stage. Choose to pre-order drinks for the break and they will be waiting for you. The production was magnificent.

You may order and pay for drinks pre show at the bar. They will be waiting for you in the bar area on the fixed sides for the interval.
