This is a lovely old theatre my children have been to pantomimes here as have my grandchildren the seats are very small and packed in as was the Victorian way but the owners are clearly keeping an eye on looking after it the atmosphere is grand whether watching a play or music, pantomime gets it full meaning here.

Great atmosphere in a well presented traditional local theatre. They have many good shows on there. We attend a few every year including the must see Pantomime!

There were a lot of kids on the show, but all was very good organized; my daughter was extremely happy; the performance was fantastic, comfy seats; a little bit expensive on the bar, but understandable; definitely will recommend to my friends

The tour gives visitors an opportunity to learn more about its history as well as seeing different sections of the theatre. There's also a behind the scenes visit to the stage as well as a bar which was, in bygone days, used exclusively by the cast!
Refreshments are included at the end of the tour.
