Went to see Derren Brown, sat in the circle a few rows back, great view of the stage, a little bit steep on the stairs so easy does it ( I am clumsy and end up tripping) Beautiful decor, well maintained. A lovely park nearby, worth a little stroll around'
Will definitely look into going again, quite a magical place.

Thank Andy L

We went to watch Spamalot and had a great time. It is an intimate little theatre and it really adds to the experience. If you go make sure you look upend see the fantastic ceiling decoration

Visited to see Spamalot, a great show!

The opera house is a really beautiful building with traditional features (even the toilets!)

Seats are comfy despite not being modern!

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.
