We saw Nell Gwynn on the 7th October. A really good performance from the cast with some very strong and witty acting. This is a very small theatre but angle of the seating makes sure that everyone gets a good view. The team who run...More

We saw David Copperfield performed by a youth theatre group. The theatre is small and intimate and the seating is steeply sloped so everyone gets a good view. There's a pleasant bar and a reasonable sized car park.

This place is brilliant. A warm welcome, a cheap bar and really outstanding work performed by an entirely amateur - or, more accurately, 'unpaid professional' - cast and backstage team. Very highly recommended.

An excellent production of Ronald Harwood's classic play, without the hassle of the West End, with it's overcrowding, endless traffic queues and expensive drinks. Well worth the £13 ticket price. Whilst the theatre is small by any comparison and located on the south coast just...More

We have been here a number of times, its a lovely theatre. It does not matter where you sit you will have a good view. The drinks and snacks are affordable. There is free oarking if you get there early.

This is a cute theatre that is not too big but very cosy and shows a variety of local shows both professional and amateur dramatic. Most of the staff that work here are volunteers and do a great job for this charitable society. The car...More

Thanks very much for your review and glad you enjoyed The Stables. Everyone involved in running the theatre - apart from the cleaners - are volunteers!

I've been to a number of performances at the Stables over the past 15 or so years. Most recently I saw a hilarious performance of 'Jeeves and Wooster: Perfect Nonsense', with a cast of just three playing all the parts, which had the audience in...More

I have seen a couple of good productions her and been impressed by the set up in what was once a stable block. It is a fair way out of the town centre but do not let that put you off. The building is clean,...More
