An intimate theatre with a warm welcome from all the volunteers and cast. Subtly nestled between period houses opposite Abbey Fields, this is a discreet venue where we saw a very good performance of Death in High Heels. The compelling character 'Dorian Pouvier' made our evening! The no.11 bus from Leamington stops outside so very convenient.

We were really amazed by Jack and the Beanstalk. The cast were full of fun, costumes were incredible and dancing top notch. Great fun family entertainment and catchy music. The lighting, sound and effects were brilliant and the staff were very welcoming and accommodating of us with a wheelchair. Kenilworth is lucky to have such talent in its doorstep.

We visited here to watch the panto, I booked way back in April when I first found out the priory existed. We usually visit the spa centre but thought we'd give somewhere else a go...

I have been lucky enough to visit the Priory Theatre Pantomime for the past 3 years and I have always enjoyed their seasonal offering and would always have rated their shows as 5 stars. As has become tradition in our household, we visited again this year to see "Jack and the Beanstalk", on Saturday 17th December and for the first... More

Have been to the pantomime for the last two years. They are spectacular entertains and excellent value for money. They can easily be compared to productions at the hippodrome in Birmingham. Have already booked for December and our grandson can't wait .

First visit to this theatre and was very impressed. All staff were very friendly, drinks were way cheaper than many other theatres. The production was about a theatre company performing the pantomime Dick Whittington. I especially liked all the jokes from the Dame but didn't like the continuous use of the 'F.....' word in all its forms. It wasn't necessary.... More

Very enjoyable evening recently, which happened to be a charity opening night performance. The play was very well acted by everyone (who are all non professionals) and was extremely hilarious. All the front of house staff were very friendly and helpful and with it being a charity event a very healthy buffet was laid on. I would recommend this theatre... More

As a Boxing Day surprise i thought it would be a fine idea to take the family to the Priory Theatre as we have done the past three years. And it seems to be that every year they deliver something better and far more superior to the year before. Also those who go to the bigger shows like Birmingham Hippodome... More
