I love a small and quirky theatre! Brilliantly designed around Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I loved the colour palette of the theatre. Very friendly staff who were skilled at herding large numbers of people.

Brought my family here to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We didn't have close seats, but I don't think there is a bad seat in this place. Staff was efficient and the bar staff were very friendly!

Very nice Theatre. We went to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and it was superb. Had very central Orchestra seats about 10 rows back from front and view was tremendous. A tip, we got tickets with 50% at the TKTS booth!
