Went on tour of theatre. An hour well spent. Very interesting and committed guide with a long professional theatre career. Hope to go back to see a show!

Fascinating restored Georgian Theatre. During part of the year there are guided tours which are very informative and lasted about an hour.

Thank Howanne

Went to see the panto here, wonderful theatre with lots of atmosphere at Christmas.The theatre is very old and very small so there is a lot of audience participation.

We got married on the stage at the Theatre and it was wonderful. The Theatre is beautiful and when we went into the fantastic auditorium we knew we had to get married here. Getting married on the stage was a great experience, we had plenty of support from Jo, Ed and Tony who were so accommodating with our ideas and great customer service from them, other staff and volunteers on the day - looking very smart for the occasion too. Thanks to Becky for looking after a nervous groom and Jo the traditionally late bride! All the guests really loved it are still talking about it. Highly recommended and thank you all, we couldn't have picked anywhere better.

with a guide this still working, early Georgian theatre is a snapshot of history. MY guide took me round the whole venue and I was able to stand on the stage and also see some of the old playbills
