Wonderful Ballet Performance - Great Hall

Every seat in this theatre is excellent for viewing. We saw the "Wuthering Heights" Ballet and were so pleased. Great view lines and acoustics.

My wife and I and our 7 month old visited today for lunch as I work nearby. This is a shocking place. The children's play area is filthy. It is a health hazzard. I would not let my little girl anywhere near it. The hot food is dried out and very poor. We both ordered the fish cakes. My wife's... More

Went to see Opera Norths production of Into The Woods - every seat has a good view, and was comfortable. Would certainly come again to see other productions.

It is with great reluctance that I report a place for poor quality - anyone can have an 'off' day when things don't go right - but it has to be mentioned when service is consistently poor. This used to be one of my favourite places in Leeds. Some great directors made this place their home, but that wasn't as... More

Went to see Peppa Pig recently. Had a really good afternoon. Wherever you sit you can see the stage clearly which is a bonus with two small children. The cafe is also ideal for a snack

Stunning visual effects, a great story well told and vibrant acting and singing kept the audience entralled. It isn't often that at the end of a show you have audience member squeuing up to buy a copy of the programme - a newspaper style publication with information giving the background and historical information as well as details about the production.

Had lunch here and the food is lovely but I do think that over £6 for a jacket potato and beans it is quite expensive. But overall it is a relaxing experience with a variety of options.

This is an excellent theatre that has some amazing plays available to see. Views in the courtyard theatre are great wherever you sit. Every kind of play from kids stuff, comedy and of course the Opera North. There's also a great restaurant that serves delicious food plus a smaller snack bar that has cakes, sandwiches and hot drinks. There's also... More

An emotional well written and produced play . A dramatic and emotional performance by the entire cast but in particular the actresses who played the two sisters. The Community Choir was very moving and brought a tear to my eye on several occasions. I would suggest this is a not to be missed play to anyone interested in the history... More
