“A Littl;e Gem in a Big Cultural City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

We saw "Wind in the Willows" last week at the Crescent - our first visit. It was a delightful production (now finished) and the theatre was compact, warm and the staff very welcoming. The Auditorium is comfortable and visibility is excellent from all the seats. We were so please we have booked again for 3 One Act Operas by Puccini in March.
If you are staying in the hotels around Brindley Place / Broad Street and have an evening to spare - try it - it will be no more than 5 minutes walk.
Even those staying in the City Centre will have only a 15 minute walk.
Prices are good value.
