This is a well managed theatre offering a finely tuned programme of variety and theatre productions both a mature and professional. Excellent parking and reasonably priced, the auditorium is modern and proscenium, and the seating is on two levels.

This little theatre punches well above it's weight in terms of the acts it attracts and living around the corner from it I see the audiences it attracts, and they are huge - so huge I have trouble getting out of the turning to get past it!

A small intimate auditorium, with excellent acoustics, and well raked seating. Run almost entirely by volunteers, Chequer Mead offers something for everyone, from live ballet, talks by knowledgeable folk on their chosen field of expertise, tribute bands and cinetamatic screenings, there is always something of interest in their coming attractions. All at very affordable prices! I would highly recommend you... More

Have spent a few good nights at this venue, saw the Fortunes there last week, very good as its a small theatre it makes the evening more intimate for the performers. Look forward to our next visit.
