“Xmas panto brillint time”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Came here for a Christmas panto and I had such a brilliant time.
I and my partner were a little early to arrive so had some pre theatre drinks in the bar, The staff were very pleasant and drink prices weren't too high (compared to high street bars). The atmosphere was amazing and the staffs happy attitudes really helped make the night.

“Great shows for all tastes”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Has a good assortment of shows on all through the year and the theatre seats comfortable and view good.
The theatre cafe leaves a lot to be desired but if a nice day can sit outside and watch people rowing on the river.

“Knock it down ”
Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

A truly awful venue. It's always the same rubbish on every year, the management really do need a shake up and some lessons on how theatre is supposed to be run. You're better off going to a real theatre and seeing a show than wasting your money here. Retractable seating, poor sound, amateur set ups. What a shame Carlisle city council won't inject some much needed culture into the community.

“Sarah Millican show”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

Been to the Sands Centre to see various shows in the last couple of years. Really enjoyed the Sarah Millican show. The Sands are getting a good variety of acts, something for everyone really. Worth keeping a look out and a visit.

“Good Local Concert Venue”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

We have been here a few times, mainly for standing events, its ok, but when the seating is in its a very nice small to medium sized arena, good easy access, toilets and bar on hand and its own car park to boot. Very efficient booking and the staff are great.
