Visited this theatre with my 3 year old granddaughter to see a special children's show. The theatre is small with a lovely feeling. The staff were very friendly and helpful when needed. This was my second visit, the first was to see a pantomime. Both times I have been very pleased by the overall state of the place.

Always a fab cast! Go every year just to see "chris" the dame. Good seats from most angles, very competitively priced, car patking close by and restaurants in the area.

We had a box, which sits to the side of the auditorium. There were 3 of us, but it was designed for 4 and I think it would have been... More

Great evening out in this very grand old theatre dating back to 1770s. A full house enjoyed a fantastic atmosphere. Lots of audience participation and a great performance from the cast.

I took my daughter to see Peppa Pig surprise here today and we had a great time. Although we were in restricted view seats we were able to see the whole performance. The staff were really welcoming and helpful. Only problem with a children's performance was accessing the toilets. They were quite a distance away from our seats and it... More
