“Tired but lets hope it never closes”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

They put on some great productions at very reasonable prices - bar area and small shop for sweets etc.

I wish someone would give it a facelift as it's a bit tired now - a vital part of the local community though

“Great venue even greater productions”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

I've never ever been disappointed by any of the shows at the Gracie Fields Theatre. It's in a great spot, plenty of parking, friendly staff and all the seats are good.

Cannot complain about the venue - Bar thoug is way over priced. But having booked good seats well in advance we were told we had to move as the seats had been double booked by a couple who had purchased that very day. We protested as we had purchased our tickets months in advance. Eventually we were "allowed" to remain in our seats but only after a public show-down.

nikkij_9, Manager at Gracie Fields Theatre, responded to this review, November 12, 2013

I am sorry to read about your visit and seating issue. I have looked through our records and cannot find a record of double booking to match your visit date. Some events are ticketed independently by the producing organisation. I would be happy to look into this further for you if you can supply me with the performance and/or date.

Our bar and refreshment prices are competitively priced and benchmarked against local establishments.

If you would like me to look into this further, please email the details to nikki@graciefieldstheatre.com

Kind regards,

N Jackson
Theatre Manager
