Did the behind the scenes tour - over an hour and really interesting for just £7.50. Recommended. You need to book in advance.

Fabulous show and a wonderful experience. I’d seen the original with Elaine Paige and David Essex 100 years ago but this show was edgy and very political. Loved it.

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.
