This theatre is one of the best I have attended, it also happens to be the nearest theatre of this type to me so perhaps I'm biased but I have been to many others. Bar prices are good, interval drinks were hot, seats comfortable and a great view from the circle. Last night's offering was 'Best of British' and one... More

Seen this show in the west end. So when I saw it was touring earlier in the year had to book tickets for it. The traveling version compares very well to the west end one we saw. The whole cast looked like they enjoyed what they were doing. The venue was awesome too not like a lot of theatres were... More

Lovely theatre right in the centre of Norwich. It's quite big and has a very nice restaurant which I hope to review separately but it is very nice

its the main theatre in norwich and its really packed when full. even the central aisle was removed when revamped a while ago. air conditioning struggles especially in the upper cheaper seats. the seat slope isnt very great so often your view can be obscured. norwich is well overdue for a new modern theatre with improved safety capability

A simply first-class production, excellenty staged, performed and sung. We would have expected nothing less. The theatre is modern, airy and has a great auditorium. The steeply raked seats give good sight lines to the stage.

Have been twice in the last month, firstly to see Chicago which was brilliant, amazing cast, was surprised by the great singing from the soap stars. The acting in Breakfast at Tiffanys was superb, but was spoilt by the rustling of sweet wrapper, as mobile phone going off, and people in front talking loudly, making it hard to concentrate at...

Really enjoyed the production, excellent casting and very well done. As was publicised, it was not based on the film - no bad thing. The only down side - very hot when seated.

We were at this theatre for the Saturday performance of Sound Of Music. Lovely friendly staff. Unfortunately they had run out of programmes - but it was the last night. The seats were racked well and good valuel. Kemp's Restaurant situated inside the theatre is ideal for a pre show meal and there is a car park across the road... More
