From the moment we walked into the theatre the foyer was buzzing. A member of staff took our group photo and then off to the bar. We were served promptly and allowed to take our drinks (in plastic cups) to our box which was a great idea. The performance was superb and the whole auditorium was singing along to absolutely...

We,my friend and I agreed to take them, even though we knew how high up they were , we were desperate to see the show. However , although it was a bit... More

Had two very good nights out to this theatre already this year. In February saw 'Pride and Prejudice' which was a good stage production of a much loved classic. In March saw a great cast in 'Not Dead Enough' which included Shane Ritchie. Love this older beautiful theatre. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Looking forward to other stage productions...

What a wonderful old theatre. Decor amazing and eye catching. Seats very comfortable and plenty of room. Lovely theatre but didn't enjoy the play we watched at all with Shane Ritchie in.

Have been going to see pantomines, plays and musicals here for years. My friends parents are the managers and the place is so child friendly. It is always immaculate and the shows are excellent!

Yet again an amazing show .This is a must see even though you will have to go some other theatre. Sean Jones is excellent in the part of Mickey taking you through a rough childhood but lots of laughs to a young adult with depression . This show makes you laugh in the first part and cry in the second.
