Hidden Gem the Shanklin theatre. Attended Rob Beckett show last night, not as fun by as Tom Allen or a recent trip to see Michael McIntyre. Great theatre with a great view wherever seated.

Visited this Theater on a warm Sunday evening to see the Beach Boys Tribute act. Had a great evening but would have preferred a cooler day as the heat was suffocating.
