Had fun, reasonably priced, parking was a bit steep but that’s expected for a large town! Needs a better range of productions though.

Not a bad place for a coffee, cheaper than the chains and always helps supporting local. So even if you're not seeing anything there, it's a nice place to take your laptop and notebook for a bit of work

Saw Bouncers years ago and it was as funny this time as it was then. The actors were amazing, transitioning from one character to another seamlessly. Another fantastic John Godber production and well worth seeing.

John Godber never fails to deliver. Saw the original Bouncers years ago and I expected this to be the same but with a different cast. This version is modern and up to date. It's funny all the way through but does make you think too....More

Beautiful venue with lovely helpful staff, however a warning for the tall the seats are original and there is little or no leg room, praying I don’t get a DVT.
