What a joy to see a traditional pantomime with a script that is not written for the stars. The cast of Dick Whittington worked together as one team and nobody upstaged other performers. Full of traditional pantomime values, this is what panto is about. This...More

A very accomplished performance in the cosy studio area. Very clever playing of several roles by each cast member was both humorous and well accomplished with minimal props and no scene changes.Would recommend to anyone

My wife and I booked seats in the stalls as we have previously. Absolute awful. Right next to the orchestra pit. The singing was completely drowned out and access was limited by not being able to walk in front of the stage.

It’s lots of long rows behind each other on the lower level. And then in the upper circle it’s the same. But there are a few areas around the side where you can sit
