Quirky Theatre, what a lovely place to take the family. The show was fantastic, my husband commented on how good the actors where. Again great prices only £15.00 each for Saturday evening show.

Superb afternoon at the Dukes to watch their Xmas production Aladdin. It was witty, entertaining and thoughtfully put together. Highly recommended. Staff are super helpful and it’s a genuinely welcoming place.
