Went to see a college production last night with around 20+ family & friends (Made in Dagenham). The show was amazing the two lead roles just blew all of us away especially the chap his solo was very emotional! The one thing I really feel the theatre needs to look into is some air conditioning! Almost every person I talked to during the break stated that the heat was unbearable for them and ruined part of the nights entertainment! They even sale fans behind the bar... These should be given out free!

I don’t think the panto we saw is the same as the one that has been reviewed by others. I went with 5 like-minded friends. We are all broad-minded & like a good laugh like anyone else. However, we all found the production cringingly awful. Bad script, bad directing, bad acting, unimaginative costumes and scenery, unpleasant portrayal of gays, and offensive portrayal of women. Just bad all round. So much so that we left in the interval, following several others who left before the interval! We paid the same price for our tickets as others paid for a good, well reviewed pantomime in London. I am surprised that the theatre showed this performance if they want to encourage people to visit the Blakehay. By the look of the numbers, it wasn’t well attended. All in all, an expensive mistake which we won’t be repeating. It will take a lot to get us back to the Blakehay Theatre.

Great little theatre with a good atmosphere. Easy to park as it's right next to a public car park and it's just on the edge of the town centre with restaurants and bars within walking distance.

Went to a performance of "Round the Horne" which was an exercise in nostalgia. I remember as a young man sitting around the radio refusing to move until the programme had finished. The cast performed terrifically particularly the actor who Kenneth Williams and the other actor who played Douglas Smith. The venue is lovely. A comfortable bar comfortable seats and a good performance area. Clearly money has been spent and maybe a little more needs to be spent. But a very pleasant 2 hours of entertainment in a convenient a very relaxing venue.
