Review of West Cliff Theatre

West Cliff Theatre

Attraction details
Owner description: Established on the current Clacton site in 1899, and run independently by the West Cliff Trust, the West Cliff is the only surviving purpose-built theatre in Clacton, and plays host to professional touring shows and many local amateur dramatic and operatic groups, dance schools, and other youth groups. Its compact auditorium with just under 600 seats, a unique atmosphere and knowledgeable and friendly staff make it Clacton's theatre of choice for artistes and audiences alike. The Stage Door Bar is open both prior to and during the interval for each show, and provides pre-booked meals for selected shows. The lounge may be hired for private functions with or without bar and catering services.

We always enjoy our theatre, the prices are good and the seating is comfortable, Run by mainly volunteer staff resulting in a warm and attentive evening. Never seen a duff show there :-) Enjoy :-) PS. It has stacks of history and still has fully functioning deep red velvet curtains, just like a theatre should have :-)

This place has a history, Look up the founders online.
We loved the deep crimson velvet curtains; just what every theatre should have.

A great night out. Not to expensive. Nice seating.. Car parking in and around the theatre was a bit fraught. But was free. Will go back again.

A small friendly local theatre - perfect! Sensible prices, quality acts, friendly welcoming staff. What more could you ask for on a holiday or as a local. We saw an Eagles tribute band - Talon. Fabulous. If you are in the area, do try to use this gem of a place.
