Choice of different kinds of performances. Errol Flynn shows interesting films. The complex can also be a quiet area when there are no performances in the day time. Very pleasant to lounge around.

We take our children and grandchildren every year, we feel it is very over priced. Also felt that 2016 panto was unnecessarily full of sexual innuendoes more so than any other year we have been.

Saw Lulu, she was amazing for her age! Theatre is great, helpful staff, good seats and a range of eateries. Agree with previous reviewer about the amount of stairs, but will return. Blue badge parking free in St John's car park 2 mins from theatre.

I would say all seats have a good view of the stage so I wouldn't worry

Hi unfortunately I don't - my mum is disabled so we never sit near restricted seating. Regards
