This place is an absolutely excellent theatre as it isn't too big so feels quite cosy and intimate, everywhere (including the toilets) was spotlessly clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful at all times, we went to see a bit of Gilbert and...More

Lovely theatre, not the best I've been to, but I actually like that it's quite small and not huge like some I've been to.

We love this theatre - we've been to several shows and the pantomimes are excellent. Lots of people don't seem to realise where it is but it's a gem! Well worth a visit if you're in Huddersfield!

I've lived in Huddersfield for years, but up until yesterday, I had never set foot in this lovely theatre. We attended a performance of Billy Liar by Huddersfield Thespians. It was in the cellar theatre. The setting was very relaxed, and just the right size....More

The LBT, built in 1819 as a Methodist chapel, was converted into a theatre in the 1990s. The alteration was done really well, with good sight lines and comfortable seats throughout the house. It has a varied programme and is a pleasure to visit.

I'm not really sure how we have lived here for nine years and this is my first time visiting this great theatre. I went with my two young kids going on the bus and the theatre is about a 10 minute walk (with little ones...More

Nice little theatre with BIG atmosphere. Friendly staff and great seating. We saw the production of Cinderella, and it was genuinely one of the best I've seen. Superb acting and atmosphere. Even the icecreams at the interval were reasonably priced. Looking forwards to next year's...More

Wow, what a great panto. We went to Bradford the week before to their panto, which granted had bigger names, was more polished and had evidently had more money thrown at it, but that did matter. Cinders at LBT was 100x better. The dames were...More
