What great nights we have had here on a couple of three visits. First we did the James Taylor & Carol King, then the Rod Stewart & more recently the Stevie Wonder tribute show, the place was full & it was buzzing with enjoyment from all. I can say with all fondness that it’s a great night out, get there early as the Q at the bar for a drink can be very long but worth the wait... it’s got great atmosphere & being in the town centre give the added bonus of lots of places to eat afterwards.
Highly recommended.

drank Matcham was a whiz at designing theatres and Wakefield have benefited for many years. The theatre is small enough to be intimate but large enough to have dress crcle circle and gallery. Beautifully refurbished, it is comfortable and well decorated. Staff who are often volunteers work tirelessly to ensure the public enjoy the experience. Shows are varied and of excellent quality. The bar and coffee bar serve all you might need and you can always get an ice cream in the interval. Disabled people can access the stalls without steps, directly from the front door. Altogether well worth a visit.
