“The best Theatre in Britain outside of London”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

I attend at least 5 shows each session at CFT. The main Theatre has been closed this summer but the Big tent has been a great success. I prefer the Minerva as it is so inter mate. You feel as if you are part of the performance as the stage comes out to the audience.

“Neville's Island is top notch”
Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

Excellent production with 4 superb actors. Wonderful and amusing storyline well executed. Stage setting was fantastic with Ade Edmondson arriving on stage from underwater!! The 4 characters can be found in most offices - leader who is too clever, joker who can be a pain, insecure quiet man who has everything and someone who seems to spend a lot of time away on sick pay!
Well worth a visit

“Great everytime!”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

How lucky we are to have something so great that is so local. Recently undergoing a £20 million upgrade, it will be better than ever! The shows it attracts are brilliant. Keep them coming!

“Big Top”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Went to see Barnum in the temporary theatre 'building' which is more like a big top. Excellent throughout....staff, facilities and of course the play. There is even a shuttle service from the ample car park to the theatre along the' boardwalk'.

“Barnham in a Tent”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Chichester Theatre is being rebuilt at the moment so they are staging some productions in a tent. Brilliant, comfy and staff very helpful. As the tent is a short walk from the theatre they have golf buggies for those that need a little help or anyone who doesn't want to walk. Barnham is about a circus so very apt to be performed in a tent.
