A lovely intimate, very atmospheric place. We really enjoyed both visits. There are really no poor seats wherever you sit.

“Impressive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

Impressive theatre hosting a range of performances throughout the year. Attended an opera but, to be honest, left less than half way through.

“Theatre on a grand scale”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

Had a really relaxed walk around the neighbouring pavillion gardens before stepping into the past. Lovely architecture on the outside gives way to a nostalgic foyer complete with royal red carpeting and wooden panelling. If the content of the performanecs could match it's grandeur then this would be a 5 star

“Victorian elegance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

Beautifully ornate theatre decorated in cream and gold. It has been refurbished in a style true to Frank Matcham's original design. Well worth a visit. Rather uncomfortable seats so make sure that you stretch your legs during the interval.
