This theatre is one of the nicest theaters I have ever been to. It has a lovely decoration with almost antique stuff all around with very helpful staff. It opened on 27 June 1807, with a performance of William Shakespeare's Hamlet.

Went to see "Summer Holiday" and not very good at all. The stage is so small that the Double Decker bus really did look out of place. The crew could dance but singing was not what I would call it. The seats are old, not...More
