This theatre has great atmosphere, good views from everywhere, helpful and friendly staff. Near to car parks, shops, restaurants and station. Saw the Wizard of Oz. Ashleigh and Pudsey were brilliant, as was the singing and dancing. Bobby Davro was mediocre. Main issue was that there were too many adult jokes. Yes it went over children's heads, but went on...

What a great show, the centre itself is well laid out and they do not rip you off when purchasing drinks and snacks

Visited the Hexagon to see Abba Arrival and it was a tremendous evening, the band were excellent and determined to make it a fun and enjoyable evening. The sound and lighting were excellent and the Hexagon, although getting on in years is still one of our favourite theatres as the view and acoustics are always great. I have been using... More

We had tickets bought for us to see ARRIVAL the Abba tribute band. As we entered the Hexagon we felt like turning round and going home. What a ghastly, dim, forbidding entrance. It has to be the worst place we have ever been to.We went early as it was advertised you could eat there. An awful little cafe with an... More

My daughter and I went along to watch Bugsy Malone to support one of her friends who was in the performance. Getting in and about is easy; I have to admit though that we park a bit further away as the queue to pay the ticket can be a little long. Our seats were fine, up on the balcony in... More

A fantastic evening; the sound was good, prices reasonable and excellent ladies toilets! I am so fed up with many venues not having enough and being in poor condition! If you are a Fleetwood Mac fan this tribute band is a must. Great concert.

Really enjoyable panto, all the cast were great, particularly in the major roles, evil Queen, Justin Fletcher great, star of the show was Dame Dolly Mixture (if I've got the character name right!). The improvisation was hilarious at times, and there was great chemistry between him and Justin. My only critique would be the 7 dwarves, in that having dwarf... More

Here on New Years Eve to see Snow White. Had a great family time, really well done & a nice venue. My only concern is that children even with a booster seat ( £2) needed from some seats it was still very difficult to see the stage so thought needed as to where you book your seats.

I have visited this theatre on multiple occasions over the years, for a number of different types of shows, plays and concerts. Although it is starting to look a bit tired, the facilities are very good and the location is excellent with a number of car parks and good eateries in close proximity. The “recent” refurbishment and enlargement of the... More
