“Great Venue”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

We went to see 10cc recently. First visit to this lovely venue. The theatre is small and cosy and you feel very close to the performers. Loved the character of the bar. Hope to visit again!

“Support the Stamford Theatre”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Stamford Corn Exchange is like a Dr Who's Tardis. I have seen a few shows there including 'Lets hang on' (Jersey Boys) 'Richard Digance' and 'Back to Broadway' It is almost like being in one of the West End Theatres and with it being so close I can't wait to go again. Make a point of popping in to pick up a brochure and grab yourseves a fantastic evening.

“Intimate theatre that brings you closer to the performance”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I have visited this theatre on many occasions, the most recent being to see Ian Hunter's performance in March. It is a small theatre, reminiscent of those independent cinemas of yesteryear. As such, you are guaranteed to get a good seat although be warned that when a likely act is performing, everyone gets up to dance at the front.

Facilities are a little lacking, the bar serving just one rather mediocre red wine, with matching white. And make sure that you ask for ice in a cold drink because they are not chilled very well.

Staff are friendly and welcoming (I think I heard somewhere that they are all volunteers).

Parking is plentiful on the road outside.

Judith M, Manager at Stamford Corn Exchange Theatre, responded to this review, June 14, 2013
The Facilties are not all on the Auditorium floor and possible the customer was not aware of the full range of choice at the Corn Exchange. The Theatre has a small bottle bar only at the back of the auditorium, downstairs is the very large Theatre Lounge that offers an extensive range of hot & cold drinks. A real Ale is always available along with draught Lagers, Cider, Guinness, Cream Flow etc, a selection of wines and Champagne. The Lounge offers restaurant facilities and often has a pre-show dinner on offer, 2 course £12, 3 course £14.50. The Theatre and The Lounge are Licensed for civil Weddings, Partnerships, Naming ceremonies, Memorial Services. The Lounge can hold up to 200 people buffet style or 150 seated for Weddings/Parties etc. The website has further details www.stamford-corn-exchange.co.uk
