Attended tonight with my wife she is a wheelchair user to see comedian Hal Cruttenden.
The staff were friendly, approachable and very helpful assisting my wife to her seat.
An old venue which was in very nice condition and enjoyed the visit thoroughly.
I wasn't sure what to expect from a play "The Dressing Room." by Bobby Ball. Cannon and Ball passed me by, perhaps because I'm a fraction too young or they weren't to my parents' taste in an era with less viewing choices.

This little theatre is on Swan Street in Leeds, but it is often over looked as it is up this little road. The theatre underwent a refurbishment a few years ago to restore it to its former glory as a Victorian Theatre.

I made yet another visit on Saturday night to see Tom Allen. As before the staff were very welcoming and helpful.
Tom Allen was absolutely hilarious ....I am just really glad I wasn't sat on the front row or in the front boxes!!!
We came here in November 2017 to see a Pantomime and loved it! The hall is very spacious and the seats are comfy. There was a variety of snacks which all were delicious! We would definitely come here again:)
Excellent traditional decor, seats were comfortable with just enough leg room. You can see and hear well from any seat - it is an intimate atmosphere ideal for small and one man shows. A delight to visit after have seen on TV for many years....More

The only restriction to your view will be a tiny section of the back of the stage on your side of the stage. Though as this is only a tiny stage, you will probably not be able to see about a 4 foot square area, any production worth it's salt doesn't have a lot of action going on in these corners.
I usually book box K which is above the stage and have never missed anything on stage either for plays, gigs or comedy nights
Enjoy your show and have a great time in this wonderful theatre
