Rarely disappointed when we visit. Lovely atmosphere, great friendly staff and a cozy bar. Sets, costumes and actors are all first class for what are generally amateur productions.

Went to see them pantomime with my granddaughter. First time I’ve been to the Lamproom and was amazed at the Way they have fitted so much into a small venue like this. Clean and beautifully decorated. The show wasn’t bad either. We will return

We have been visiting the panto here for 10 years now and this year (2018/19) was one of the best. Everything about it was good and all the theatre staff are friendly and very helpful. Thoroughly recommended.
