“Lovely building with comfy seats ”
Review of Buxton Opera House

I got the impression that the the venue was Staffed by volunteers. They were helpful. The building is beautiful. Seats are comfy and in stalls there was plenty of leg room. Nice view of stage. Felt intimate.

Bar busy but fine. Sold sweets and chocolate too. Good ice cream at the interval.

Only one ladies loo on the bar level. Apparently there are more upstairs so perhaps they need to tell people queuing that this is the case.

Would definitely return

What a great old theatre, we watched ‘Spamalot’ which was great. Definitely worth a visit if something on takes your fancy, toilets limited and bar small but otherwise fine.

Theatre was packed and very hot and stuffy. Show started and everybody in front of us stood up. I had to stand through entire show to enable me to watch the show. Bar is shut during performance which means there is a mad rush during the interval. For shows like this I dont think this is necassary. Show was ok.

Every time I visit the Buxton Opera House I feel blessed that we have this special place so near. The tickets are not too expensive, everything I have been to has been good and the variety of shows on offer just keeps improving.
The staff are extremely pleasant and helpful. Overall a wonderful experience.
