“First Night of ENLIGHTENMENT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

We went to the first night of the above play. It is a deep and dark play with many twists. Well acted and staged. Was one of the best things we have seen there.

On another subject we thought it was disgusting that people where using the bar as a lounge without buying anything. We saw a table of 4 and a table of 2 in the area we sat in. Many people who HAD bought drinks were forced to stand, some of them quite elderly.

THE BAR SEATING SHOULD BE FOR PAYING CUSTOMERS ONLY.

“Lovely little Theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Have been visiting here for a few years now. The theatre is small, comfortable and immaculate. Staff and box office assistants are friendly and smartly dressed.
A good mix of plays are preformed each year and an excellent panto is preformed at xmas.
You can join a members club which gives you discount on most shows. Also as a treat for Mondays you can buy 2 for 1 tickets for first night shows. Book early as this is a full house evening. You are welcome to use the Garricks bar when attending shows or as a member on show nights. One of the few places like this around lets hope it remains for a long time to come.
