Nice theatre, small seats as usual though, bit uncomfortable if you're a bit wider than a size 14! Went to see Mary Poppins, probably the best show I have ever seen! An absolute must see show, just perfect ( in every way!)

Hey! Unfortunately that I don't know how to answer you, my seat was in in the far back of the balcony, but it was perfectly fine to see everything and be involved in the play. I reckon the middle seats would be better.

Anything is fine. I have seen shorts to jackets. It is all what you like. I tend to dress better because I like an evening at the theater, but there is no actual code.

The seats were tight and the space was small, my partner is 6 ft and it was a tight squeeze so it maybe worth contacting the theatre to try and get a more spacious seating area :)
