After a few months of unfortunate closure, the theatre is open again and building an interesting programme of events - from recent films, through live screenings from the National Theatre & RSC, to local theatrical groups, to professional companies, dance, music and comedy: something for everyone. there's plenty of parking both onsite and in the closely located multi-storey car park...

The Castle is a good small theatre, it serves decent food (Franks that is) and has a good mix of shows. However, it is however pretty expensive, as well as high ticket prices everything they sell is on the high side. So all in a decent place but the prices can leave a bitter taste.

Have enjoyed many great shows in this warm, welcoming theatre. The venue is home to Arts and activities for children. I hope they all return to continue to support this venue. The coffee shop has remained open even when no shows have been scheduled. Sleeping Beauty on Ice promises to be spectacular. Great for the after Christmas period. last visit... More
