This lovely theatre has just put on one of its best shows - the Nutcracker by the English National Ballet. Many congratulations to all concerned. The theatre offers great value when compared to London prices and a wide range of shows to suit all tastes. Book early to avoid being disappointed. Highly recommended.

We had pre-booked disabled access and a transfer from a wheelchair into a seat in the stalls.Excellent facilities and ease of access. The show was brilliant and we shall certainly go again now we know that it is so easy. Lots of parking nearby and even paving around the theatre.

The theatre is lovely and the staff very friendly and helpful. We did struggle to hear at first from our seats near the back of the stalls but eventually 'tuned in'. The cast and play was very enjoyable and funny but we were a bit disappointed that it finished at 9:30, thought it might have gone on longer.

The theatre itself is super and the performance of the Nutcracker was wonderful. The evening was spoilt though by the outrageous price of £7.90 for 175ml glass of wine. How on earth can this be justified. I'm surprised I wasn't charged for the glass of tap waster I had because I was the driver - the ice was free too!!!... More

Theatre foyer very spacious but wish it had more seating. Theatre comfortable and seems to have good viewing all round. We had seats that were listed as restricted view but couldn't find a problem with them until the people in the row in front sat down but it wasn't the view that was the problem it was the leg room!...

We often go to the mid week matinees and at last I thought it worth sharing our enthusiasm for this venue. Milton Keynes theatre has everything the big West End theatres don't have. Plenty of leg room, good heating/air conditioning, plenty of toilets and bars, lots of nearby parking as well as good sight lines from almost every seat. There's... More

A lovely elegant modern theatre, comfortable seats with a good view of the stage. Plenty of room in the foyer for mingling during the interval and before the show. I agree about the lack of Ladies toilets - no excuse in a modern theatre. We ate in the restaurant. On their website they emphasised that it was advisable to book.... More

This is a good place to visit to see West End Shows without having to travel to London. The theatre is bright and airy with seating in the foyer and a bar, which also sells snacks and hot drinks. The seats are comfortable and most give you a good view of the stage. The staff are very friendly and the... More

We love this theatre with good shopping and eating facilities very close by. Seating is very good but prices of drink and nibbles is over priced. Toilet facilities could be bigger and cleaner though. Staff never seem to be happy working here and always moaning. Shame really!!!

We go to Milton Keynes theatre at least once a month sometimes more. We used to go regularly to the West End but since discovering this theatre 2/3 years ago we don't bother with the West End anymore. It's a very clean comfortable theatre & in general the staff are very helpful but we find that at times more staff... More
