“Hidden gem of a theatre in the heart of Leicester”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

Small, quaint, victorian theatre, hidden away next to the youth hostel in Leicester City centre. Only a step away from the railway station.

“Great little venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

Not the biggest place you will ever visit but a nice intimate venue in the traditional spence. With balcony and reasonably sized stage you are never too far away from the action, a real chance to experience live entertainment as it should be, up close and personal. The venue has a good bar with a reasonable selection and friendly bar staff. A handy location makes it accessible to the railway station which also has a taxi rank so useful for those late nights. Check the web site for what's on.

“A great night out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

went to see two comedians practising for Edinburgh festival. Small theatre but intimate and friendly. Sat on round tables on ground floor and were able to take in drinks from the bar. Snacks provided on the table along with a candle too
