Had a lovely visit to the theatre with my wife. Newly refurbished theatre, clean and fresh bar area. Friendly and approachable staff. Top tip -arrive early as seats are allocated on arrival not when tickets are purchased. Cracking show as always.

As always, a lovely visit to Whitefield Garrick; this time to watch Dandy Dick. This is my type of play, a good old fashioned comedy with larger than life characters. A super performance by the vicar and I loved the stable boy's comical interjections. Well...More

We had a great night at the the theatre. Such a good play, great set, superb acting from a great cast but especially from the lead Peter Schofield. This play was very funny and centred around a Deane and his family. It’s very well directed...More

Shame to see this company wasting its effort on this lightweight fare. Competently done, of course, but not funny, of historical interest, or having anything to justify the time spent. Sad.More

Went to see A Different Way Home this week. It was exceptional - funny and moving. John O’Connell delivered two amazing monologues- an incredible feat of memory an incredibly engaging performance. Well directed too. Lovely bar area.

This was an exceptional production! I think John O'Connell connected with every audience member with his towering performance. The nostalgic tales of the lives of Leslie and Maureen developed into both a very moving and a very funny production. Congratulations Andrew Close, John O'Connell and...More

A stunning solo performance by an accomplished actor. Anyone who ever had a sibling will find something in this acutely observed drama that reminds them of their own relationships. It is a poignant tale but not without humour, and should warm even the coldest heart....More

The professional standard of this theatre company was maintained with the latest offering "Shadowlands". The story concerns C S Lewis, the donnish bachelor of the Narnia Chronicles and much Christian apologia, and the love that came to him late in life when he met Joyce...More
