In answer to the person who couldn't get tickets for a show, I would agree it isn't the most easiest of theatre's to get tickets for. The way to do it is to get them in the weeks before the play has begun to show....More

There is no lift to the circle, but all facilities are available at ground level. Bar, coffee bar, toilets, sweets, ice cream and program sales are all on same level as the stalls.
