“WHAT A VENUE!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

A great venue, the staff are great too!! The best place to see live music in Yorkshire. Visit to see Benjamin Francis leftwich, the atmosphere is very good, a nice little bar on the top florr too. I never knew the place was there and walked past it every day!

“Cinderella rocks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

What a fantastic theatre. Small and friendly - it is not as big as it looked on The good old days! It has been refurbished to an excellent standard. We went to see a rock n roll version of cinderella and it was brilliant for all ages

“CIRCUS HILARIOUS OUTSTANDING ENTERTAINMENT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

booked to see circus hilarious 9th & 10th April got front row seats
went last year to see them 17th & 18th feburary Leeds city varieties
they are outstanding if you haven't seen them before go once you have seen them once you want to go again
there was something for everyone in the audience
my 2 children are there number 1 fans love the audience participation time
when Danny Adams get people to go on stage very funny
you don't stop laughing from the start to the end well worth the 2 hours
they also meet the fans after each show to have photos taken and get autographs
if you need somewhere to go. go and see them you don't know what you are missing
I WOULD RATE THEM 10 OUT OF 10
