We came to Sarah Millican. Nice venue. Good facilities. Few different bars and you can even sit and eat. Quite like a canteen. Comfy seats (well better than the norm) enjoyable few hours.

I will only use this venue if I can't see the same show or music anywhere else within 30 miles. Solely because the car parking is dreadful. The multi storey car park is a car scraper with sharp brand in your way in many areas...More

Always good to see & hear Jools and his Orchestra, especially at the more intimate venue of Butterworth Hall. Ignoring other peoples reviews, I thought that Marc Almond was very good and entertaining.

I'm not sure which is Helen Martin theatre. However if it's the main theatre at Warwick Arts then yes they are numbered.
