Lovely small old theatre with a beautiful auditorium. Places like this should be preserved and cherished. It’s great for comedy as you are close to the performer and feel part of the show. We saw Gary Delaney and he was brilliant!

Went for Pantomime this Christmas, show was average but performed in a theatre that has been around for over 200 years, for goodness sake make sure this historical artefact survives.
