We watched a cricketing event here and sat in a box. Very good views from all seats as the venue is quite intimate. Parking is only a short distance away and can be timed with having dinner beforehand. Prices not as bad as Bristol theatres.

Ive been here a few times and I think that all the seats are good. For a small child , I would say centre near the front would probably be best.
