Went to see pantomime (Peter Pan) at the Forum in Barrow with 4yr old grandchild. An excellent production and thoroughly enjoyed by children and adults alike. Well done to Barrow. The theatre was well presented with good staff. Would recommend a visit.

Great little theatre for local and visiting events, smaller rooms available for smaller events. Bar and cafe gives good service and value, recently biased because my grandson was performing in the pantomime, brilliant!

FORUM"S only fault is they serve the weakest coffee in Cumbria . The problem is the staff don"t measure the same amount of coffee. The male manager & his male asst use 2 flicks or shots of coffee which makes a superb drink , whereas the female staff use a quick flick of coffee which results in a hot glass... More

We were in town for the Stylistics concert at the Forum. Having never been before we stayed at the Travelodge just outside town and used a taxi in and out. Great service from A1 Taxis 01229 838383. The Forum has its own café area (worth looking at if you need a meal) and the bar is well stocked. There were... More

Excellent venue putting on some good shows with top acts. It boasts a bar and a cafe. Prices are a little higher than normal high st cafes and pubs but still well worth it

We attended an evening presentation in the theatre. A medium sized stage easily visible from all tiered seating. Sound , lighting , ambient temperature were all ok and the various access points are convenient. The seats are quite hard and not large - but comfortable enough for a couple of hours. I found the leg room rather minimal which resulted... More

We saw mister maker here, the venue was great and full, lovely little cafe to use during the break of a show and clean toilets, all seats seemed to have a good view and the staff were really friendly, very child friendly, the show was excellent.

Haven't visited the Forum cafe for a well. Not as keen on the cafe in the main area but do like to sit through the back in the bar area cafe. Decent food and selection. Basic choices though. Coffee cups are very tiny
