Sleeping Beauty The Adult Panto was the show we chose to see in this lovely small theatre. The intimate atmosphere certainly helps make this theatre. Would certainly take in another show in this theatre. Oh and the Panto was hilarious.

The building is very attractive and has a combination of theatre, film and art plus cafe. Nice place to chill and escape the exterior bustle (especially in Carnival time!)
