Dear Patron,

Thank you for your positive review of our theatre, we appreciate that it takes time to leave us a review so we are always happy to take these on board.

The Pantomimes are always a great night out for all the family, and we’re glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit last year! Our local amateur societies always produce excellent shows, and we have had a rich history of performers throughout our many shows. We will pass on your kind words to the cast and producing company for last years pantomime.

Our bar area provides a welcoming space to wait before a show or to meet up in after you’ve enjoyed the show. We’re pleased that you think it is a good bar area too, and there are plans to make use of this as a potential performance space for more intimate shows again in the future.

Once again, we would like to thank you for your positive review and taking the time to leave this for us. We look forward to seeing you again this year for the pantomime and hopefully a few shows before that too!

Dear Patron,

Thank you for your review and feedback regarding the Leisure Centre. We are disappointed to hear that you have had an issue with the closure of leisure facilities in Melton Mowbray. Fortunately, the theatre has continued to thrive during this testing period.

You may be aware of the news that the previous Leisure Facilities are to be redeveloped to create a modernised teaching space for Brooksby Melton College students. The decision to close the previous facilities was not taken lightly, but the financial burden of running these unsubsidised was too great to continue. The theatre also continues to run unsubsidised and unsponsored, putting on as many local community shows as possible to continue supporting the people of Melton Mowbray.

We would like to apologise for the fact you were unable to get a drink at the interval of the show you attended. The bar is opened at the request of the theatre hirers, and they dictate whether or not the bar is open before, during and after a show. If the bar area proves to be too busy during the interval, we always accept interval orders prior to the show starting. There are on site vending machines installed for drinks and snacks in the event that the hirer does not wish to open the bar facilities.

We hope that the issues you encountered do not put you off returning to the theatre in the future, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
