Brilliant night out and fantastic musicians. Lots of Roy Orbison's songs together with Travelling Wilbury's. If you shut your eyes you really would think Barry Steele was the man himself. Nice venture. This show is touring the country so do try to see if.

Great evening entertainment despite the somewhat dated theatre but set was good and the cast were excellent. Main criticism was the toilet facilities - not enough of them plus they were smelly

A completely absorbing hour on a wet Saturday morning - well worth £7.50. Our guide Ben was well informed and entertaining. The tour included history, architecture, the mechanics of theatre and some back stage gossip about some of the stars. I cannot recommend it highly...More

This is a small but atmospheric theatre. As well as the usual stalls and dress circle seating it also has a small number of boxes although these are very close to the stage. Tickets for popular shows, such as Rocky Horror etc sell quite fast...More
