Staff lovely and very helpful at this well-run, small, friendly theatre. Take a cushion - the seats are hard but worth any discomfort.

Great play and actors. We've enjoyed a number of performances here in the last three years. In the summer the company usually mounts an outdoor play in an interesting local garden or other location.

Tremendous mimicry of Margaret T and The Queen. Clever dialogue and very believable. The device of young and old versions gave the historical perspective verisimilitude.

Hi. There is a 40-bay car park behind the theatre, and plenty of free parking options within a 5-10 minute walk. For more information see the theatre website, under the 'Your Visit' page.
