“What a great night”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Went to see Save the last dance for me and it was really fantastic.
We are lucky to see such productions without having to go to London.
Absolutely marvelous.

“Outstandingly comfortable seats”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

This theatre appears drab from outside, but the comfort of the seating and the excellent viewing is of a remarkably high standard - better than many West End facilities.
If you like the show you have chosen, you will certainly like the auditorium experience.

“Nice theatre needs modernising”
Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

Saw Micky Flanagan at this theatre. He was great. Theatre has lots of charm and potential.
No air con made the theatre so uncomfortable during performance. Service for drinks was slow. Bar man couldn't fit all tonic in cup, instead of larger cup we ended up with gin so strong it was undrinkable and a diet coke so watered down also not enjoyable to drink. Theatre really needs an update...Glad old Micky kept us laughing!

“Nice Venue”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Visited on 31 May to see the Brand New Heavies, nice theatre, quite a large venue must hold around 1000 this means you get some big acts/shows.

Staff were friendly and helpful, sound was good and the view lines look very good from anywhere in the stalls.
