We went with friends to see Jenny Eclair as our first visit to the Oxford Playhouse. Comfortable seating, a reasonably priced bar and staff that seemed genuinely interested helped to make it an enjoyable visit.

I thoroughly enjoyed La Strada in March 2017. A splendid theatrical night out and a fitting tribute to the great road movie of the 1950s. Everybody very friendly and a nice vibe all round.
