“fantasic resource, support it and have a great night into the bargain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

How such a small place gets such a fantastic theatre I do not know, but I am not complaining, I intend to visit again on our return! The productions I have seen have been top notch and a great way to spend an evening. If you are coming up to keswick or near by make sure you look whats on before you come. The theatre itself is relatively new with excellent facilities including food and drink, its set in a lovely location with ample parking. Please support such a great resouce, would love to have such a good threatre near me but sadly not so, intend to adopt this one, well done to the whole team.

“The Doll House”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We went to see the doll house and enjoyed it very much. It was a small room so you could really see the expressions and emotions, would like to go again to see another production.
