We went to see the Wizard that never Woz - the acting was ok and Christian could fairly move around for someone of his age! However the formula is very similar to the panto last year and many of the props were the same.

We took our daughter here to see Mr Tumble. The show was great, view was fantastic and considering how many children were there including small babies the staff handled this very well. Our daughter (and us) had a ball. Tickets were expensive but think this...More

Good humoured and spirited performance but the narrative was lost on me! The Wizard needs urgent replacement with a comedy character. It would help if you could hear what he was saying. Birthday call outs should be before the interval not at the end when...More

yes, everyone does this. I suppose as long as you weren't eating anything too noisy. I would say don't bring hot food in. That's just a step too far ... wee bit unfair to other visitors and they may want to share your chips!! More
