“I LOVE THE CRUCIBLE!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

A childhood dream realised as I headed to Sheffield's Crucible Theatre to watch my snooker heroes play at their best. It was all I expected and more! I got to see Dennis Taylor strut his stuff and tell some funny stories, and of course see the amazing Rocket Ronnie in action! I'm going to make it an annual pilgrimage if I can!!

“History Boys: awful sound quality but some excellent actors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

Sat at side near to the back and was very disappointed with sound quality. Could hardly hear Matthew Kelly at times, and the quiet slightly weak voice of Posner was too soft. Others were fab though, and the overall energy and super-fast scene changes were excellent. Would recommend

“Snooker”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

Went here for the snooker! brilliant. The event was set out well. A great atmosphere. The staff were helpful and pleasant. The inside is kept clean but not huge for the volume of people. Toilets were ok but be prepared like anywhere when busy to wait. Well worth a visit when the snooker is on. A great atmoshere. We travelled by train and was easy to get too from the train station.

“Brilliant Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

Spacious and atmospheric. We saw the World Snooker finals there and the round theatre plus all the TV monitors mean you get mostly a good view of the action wherever you sit. Good sized bar and large meeting area in the foyer with very friendly staff.

“the home of snooker”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

Went there for the snooker world cup and absolutely loved it. The atmosphere is great. All is well managed and clean. The place was fully packed and toilets got a bit crowded during breaks, but no big deal. I don't know about other events but for snooker the Crucible is perfect!
