“Always a good night..”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

The theatre has a good atmosphere and no matter where you are sat you have a good view and can hear everything without it being too loud!
The bar is always like a bit of a cattle market and could perhaps do with having a system of sorts put in place so that people get served in order as it's frustrating to stand there for fifteen minutes only to have the person who has just pushed in next to you served before you. Also, don't like the plastic glasses but can understand why they are used.
The place is very good overall, the show you see may not be but you can't blame the Hall for that!!!!

“"Very good "”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

This is an excellent place to go and visit shows. Every year they put on pantomines which saves people going up to Plymouth. They cater so well for people with disabilities . Everyone is helpful

“Ok venue. Awful show!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

Firstly the venue. Good parking & variety of eateries which you MUST pre book! Not enough bar staff pre performance means getting a drink is hit & miss. Seating area in bar is inadequate. Upstairs area for members only which apparently is very nice. Probably best to go elsewhere first & just turn up for the performance. We went to see THE MOSCOW STATE CIRCUS. The show was dreadful. Awful production which would have received 3 buzzes if it had been an act on BGT!! We left at the interval bemused at what we had seen given the glossy advertising. Finally, the seating is VERY uncomfortable & the spacing between chairs & in front is very limited. If you happen to sit next to a larger than average person it is not a pleasant experience. In conclusion, despite the above re the actual show we saw, HFC is a good venue with shortcomings that will be exacerbated by a poor show!

“For a Variety of Entertainment”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

From Opera, panto-mines, ballet or shows, this is the place to go to be entertained. Here they put on wonderful entertainment that equals the West-end shows down in the City of London.
