“Victorian tradition”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Such old world charm brought up to date. Catering from musicals to revues. Acoustics are great, th restoration perfect. It is worthwhile trying to get a tour back stage and under the stage to see how the original Victorian stage equipment and machinery has been restored (And still works)

“A Victorian gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

What a beautiful building, I had the pleasure of working there for a show and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff and crew are wonderful people and a pleasure to work with I could not praise them enough.
I was given a guided tour and what a gem the place is, the old lighting equipment is fantastic to see, and the old generator room and the only working Corsican Lift in these Islands is worth the trip alone to see.
The Theatre is a wonderful piece of Victorian flamboyance, of which the Staff are justly proud. If you are there go in and see it!
