Just been to yet another brilliant production at The Criterion. How lucky we are to have this theatre so close to home. Small, cosy, friendly and highly professional. A good bar, and great website for easy on line booking WITHOUT having to create a login!

Sometimes I have to remind myself when I watch productions at The Criterion, that the cast and crew are all amateurs. Because there is no difference from the standard and quality of a professional theatre. Liberty Valance was no exception - The set was amazing,...More
