We watched Derren Brown here and the atmosphere of this building is just haunting! Perfect location for a mind blowing show!

Went with my wife to see Jane McDonald who put on a really professional and amusing show. Great entertainer. The staff greeted us in a very helpful and friendly way and arranged a refund immediately for an item bought prior to the show that was not actually available on the night. Great service. The bar service before the show was... More

Visited to see Wicked a few years ago. Friendly helpful staff, who had to help us with someone who was sat in our seats. Tight squeeze for wheelchair into main entrance but one i was inside lots of room. Will visit again

There's a good rake to the seating in the stalls, making for a good view, however watch your water bottles, as they will go rolling away towards the front! Balcony seating, on the other hand, is very cramped and very hot.

I love this theatre! A quaint, ornate old building. Been here a few times over the years, seems to have some of the better shows appearing here and reasonable prices. The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is when we visited in august this year to see sister act, the theatre was so hot it was almost too much... More

I visit this theatre quite often and usually have the same seats. Yesterday I visited to see Sister Act, at the matinee performance. this is truly a beautiful Victorian theatre, well maintained. the staff are always courteous and extremely helpful, and I have got to know a few of them to exchange a few words with. My only criticism of... More

Went to see Sister Act last night (24/8/16) and it was fabulous darling, Alexandra Burke was truly amazing and her vocals on point, it was funny and upbeat, kept wanting to get up and join in with a dance, only downside was the heat, we were sat in the stalls and it's was extremely warm and sticky which made sitting...

Went to see Alexandra Burke on the opening night of Sister Act (one of my favourite movies) and the whole thing was uncomfortable. Expected the seating to be like it was as it is a magnificent building but far to hot . The show was disappointing the cast worked their sox off but it just didn't happen ,gave a nodding... More

A relic of a bygone age, but in immaculate condition and my only criticism would be the lack of AC or ventilation. We were in the stalls and overheating by the end - the dress circle and balcony must have been unbearable. All of this was overshadowed by the spectacular performance of Sister Act, a hilarious and well performed version... More
