“Lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Saw show by amateur company. Very impressed with venue, price and atmosphere. Loos could be a little bigger and a bit of a face lift, but hey you don't spend long in the loo! Will be going again.

“Wonderful Theatre”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

A credit to the people who work there maintaining it. Pick the correct show (for you) and enjoy a wonderful night out. We like to sit in the circle for an extra special view. Bar a bit iffy could do with something other than echo falls wine (cheap and nasty) Just a minor thing but could do with sorting !

“Wonderful Edwardian theatre”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

I have been here several times and love this amazing theatre. The building, interior, decor, artwork etc are wonderful and the staff work so hard to keep it in top condition. It costs huge amounts of money for the upkeep,but they have slowly renovated many areas over the years such as the ladies toilets and bar area. They put on a large variety of shows, from school productions, local theatre groups to big west end shows. There is a backstage theatre tour on occasional weekends which gives you access to other parts of the theatre as well as information on the amazing history of the place.

Gorgeous theatre!
I have already seen a couple of pantos there, a few plays, an opera and attended other events. All of them were amazing!
I would suggest everyone to visit the Kings Theatre!
