Very well managed exciting theatre

A wonderful theatre where you can see from every seat. Accessible. The booking system is easy to use and informative. Excellent restaurants for a pre-theatre meal

THE DRESSER is a fabulous West End production, with original cast, REECE SHEARSMITH, KEN STOTT, SELINA CADELL & HARRIET THORPE, CFT is the place to see top quality shows for a fraction of the price of a London Theatre, comfortable seating with good views of the stage.

Chichester festival theatre production have an incredibly high standard. Been lucky enough to see the summer show there for the last 5 years and a variety of other performances as well. I've never been disappointed and I love the variety of the type of musical, play and ballet they put on.

Visited to see Running Wild - the theatre is great - easy parking which is free after 6pm (at the moment anyway), lots of lobby space, new toilet facilities, cloakroom and plenty of places to get a drink or snack. The viewing is pretty good wherever you sit. Even in row T we had a pretty decent view. The show... More

First visit to this theatre and we fully enjoyed the experience. Lovely facilities, helpful staff and a superb performance from the cast. We enjoyed excellent views of the stage and almost felt that we were on set. Looking around the theatre I am sure that that excellent views applies wherever. We will most definitely return.

I've attended this theatre fairly regularly for some years now. Generally great productions with top actors. Shows to suit all tastes. It's a modern theatre, so comfortable, but not everybody likes the layout - not in the round but the stage is surrounded on 3 sides. Pretty good disabled access.

Birthday Weekend in Chichester for my Sister's Birthday. We went to see "The Dresser" and found the Theatre well set out, there isn't a bad seat in the house. The performance was excellent and we had a wonderful afternoon. We will be back!

I had seen "The Dresser" in London, and unfortunately had to leave after the interval. I decided on a whim to visit Chichester Festival Theatre when I learned the cast were going to perform down there. I liked the fact there were three widely spaced cafe/bar areas, and lots of seating. I LOVED the fact there were about 3 times... More
