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.

A really lovely little theatre. A good variety of different entertainment. The festival week is always a highlight for me.

A great play in a great environment. It's a traditional theatre and ideal for watching an Agnatha Christie play. Would go more often but not everything they put on is my cup of tea. Staff are brilliant
