“Sound still not great, bar work-shy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

The sound wasn't great when I worked there in the last millennium. It hasn't got any better now.

Bar closed at the end of the interval with literally hundreds of people still waiting. Great business plan.

“George's Marvelous medicine”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

Went to see this last night. Not sure who it was aimed at but didn't appeal to any of our group who were mixed ages. Theatre half empty-not surprised.

“More room please”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

Having payed £35 for tickets to see Chicago at the Corn exchange, I would have expected to be able to sit comfortable, the seats were appalling it was like sitting on primary school chairs, no place to put coats or handbag, as the space between seats was so small it was the most uncomfortable few hours I have spent, it ruined the show for me and the rest of my party. I will not be looking to book for any future show, paying top price for such poor seating.

“Popular venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

Popular venue in Cambridge for shows and performances. If you book early enough you can get some really good seats. Often have popular comedians on as well as a few music acts each year, I saw example here last December.

Facilities are good with toilets and a bar.

Tickets tend to be a very good price.

Venue is close to restaurants and the grand arcade car park - however this is a nightmare to get out of after a show.
