Recently moved to North Devon and have just returned from what was apparently an AmDram show. We were not only impressed with the show but mostly we really liked the surroundings. The theatre has apparently been on this site as long as people can remember, albeit not always a playhouse. It is comfortable, inviting, quite small, but looking at the... More

We visited recently to see Lulu, which was an excellent evening's entertainment. The theatre is quite historic, with some nice architecture reflecting it's age. The auditorium is intimate and the seats are comfortable with a decent amount of leg room. It is situated in the centre of Barnstaple and there is plenty of parking nearby.

This happens twice a year, up in the cafe area on 1st floor, where you choose three different crafting arts, and join a table for an hour and learn a new craft! Great friendly atmosphere, plenty of tea and coffee in the mid way break. All proceeds go towards the Friends of Theatre, and you go home with some projects... More
