The "Sir John Mills Theatre" is the home of Eastern Angles Theatre Co. The theatre is in a converted Victorian primary school and though small it is very versatile and comfortable with tiered seating giving good views. Acoustic are excellent so even if you are on the back row you can hear clearly. The atmosphere is very informal but the... More

Came and saw urinetown. Lovely little intimate theatre. Really feel like you are in the show! Bar was well stocked with snacks, drinks and ice cream. Definitely would see shows here again!! Urinetown itself was brilliant with a very talent cast!

Small theatre, love the ambiance and slight quirky nature.. Saw the play Ushers here recently. What a treat. An ameteur company but very well done. It's great to see something different!

This is a fantastic theatre to watch independent and quirky performances. There's nothing like the SJM as they have the ability to produce good entertainment over and over again. A warm and welcoming theatre with good local connections. Their Christmas shows are a family favourite.

A group of us visited to see Holy Mackerel. Hilarious! If slightly eccentric and crazy. It was a fast moving, action packed show with the few cast members playing two or three characters. The story was, at times a little hard to follow but the actors put their all into the parts and the audience were thrilled with the performance.... More

My wife and I have been attending this theatre for many years now and never miss the wonderful Christmas shows. Saw Oysters last night and we enjoyed every moment. Good cast playing many parts.

What a difference from last year's lack-lustre show. Eastern Angles Christmas show back on form. Excellent acting, singing, jokes etc. Can't say I always followed the plot but that's all part of the fun. Absurdity heaped on absurdity - brilliant. All the fun at the expense of Catholics - even better!

This small theatre has a lovely cosy intimate feel, you are right up there with the actors rather than the action being on some distant stage that you need binoculars to see properly. The Eastern Angles put on a great show - we saw "The Mystery of St. Finnigan's Elbow", a slightly surreal send-up of an Enid Blyton type adventure... More
