Great outing, wonderful entertainment, everyone seat is a good one. Easy access from car park. Food not the main event but simple good value, could be better presented - china/cups.

This really is a super Christmas Show that only the Christmas Grinch could fail to enjoy. Singing, dancing, comedy all in a fabulous setting provide a welcome respite from the woes of the world and a joyous celebration of the festive season. I’ve read some...More

You will not know where to look as the show happens on all parts of the stage and in the aisles. You will get a good view from wherever you sit

If I would like to take my wheelchair bound mother for something to eat before the evening performance, what time would you recommend arriving on a day when there is a matinee? Is the disabled parking usually full during the matinee performance?
