Came here recently to watch illegal eagles which was a really good night. Hadn't been to this theatre since I was very young and it hasn't changed at all. Seats are slightly uncomfortable and it could do with a little refurbishment in that department but I don't expect anything amazing from a small theatre in a small town

Some refurbishment going on so probably forgive the access difficulties I saw for some older and infirm visitors getting to the bar during the interval. You probably go to a theatre for what they are showing and what you want to see, so on that basis Thetre Royal St Helens is quite adaquate and future improvements are promised and in... More

Although small this is a lovely little theatre which is quite diverse in what it shows. From musicals to comedians to plays there is something for every taste. I saw Julian Clary here as well as Elkie Brookes, The Drifters, The Dubliners and a variety of plays. The theatre has a bar also.

I always love a good Panto before Christmas with the children and this year we chose Aladdin at St Helens Theatre as my friend told me how great there Panto was in 2015.

Ordering Tickets the week before the show, the ladies in the ticket office gave a very warm welcome and were extremely helpful. Inside the theatre staff ushered us to our seats, where we sat during a very good performance of Aladdin. (During intervals more toilets required due to numbers - however still a very good venue for a pantomime)

The standard of the theatre is maintained and clean and I've seen some improvements over the years especially in reception. The bar needs improvements and bringing up to date especially with the prices and I always feel like the staff don't know what's happening.
