Very old traditional Theatre with interesting ceiling art. The shows I have seen here are brilliant. Seating a little tight but will return again and again.

Great variety of shows, including ballet, musicals and drama. The Pantomime is always fab for children and grown ups alike! As it's a Victorian theatre the seating is traditional and cramped but you have to expect that!

You would only need to pay for a ticket for a child aged 2 years + children under this age can go free of charge and would sit on a parents knee
