Reviewed 11 July 2018

Saw a great show by Bill Bailey in June and that man is a comic/musical genius. I fully recommend seeing one of his shows if you get the chance. Big shout out to Tickets for Troops who made watching this show possible.

The Parr hall is a great theatre. Nice decor. Easy to find. Plenty of nearby parking but, it is quite simply too small. Warrington people are crying out for a theatre like the Lowry for years and eventually they will get one. If a brand new theatre gets built, it will be the deaf nail for this lovely little place.

It can seat 1000 I believe. It needs to at least double its capacity, upgrade seats etc etc. There is room at the sides to extend and add extra wings if there is a will and I hope the Warrington people go for this option rather than building new else where.

Also of note was how hot it was during the show. Please install aircon. The upper seats were like a sauna.

Looking forward to my next visit.

Thank Nigel C

We attended a comedy gig here last night. We split our sides laughing at John Bishop and Adam Hills.
Lovely staff who are so accommodating and friendly. The hall is superb, I think no matter where you sit you get a good view. The only thing is there is no air con and it got quite hot, ladies, take a fan.
A nice bar with quick and easy service half way through the performance.
Easy and free parking close by.
Highly recommend.

Visited quite a few times for various events from children's ballet through to seeing Mike and the Mechanics of Genesis fame there. Ken Dodd used to appear there for his annual gig. Seating especially in the circle is excellent and ticket sourcing via the Pyramid website always reliable.

Great venue for music, plays, comedy recently saw Bill Bailey. Arrived a few minutes after doors opened and had a drink in the bar before watching an amazing show. Place could have done with some air circulation or air con.

On June 6th 1964, aged 21, I met my future wife Jean at the regular Saturday night dance in the Parr Hall. It was the first, and only time in my life, I escorted home the most beautiful girl in the room. We were married in Widnes in 1964 and have lived in Canada (Vancouver and Montreal) since 1967. So pleased to know the Parr Hall also lives on. We'll make a pilgrimage there when we next visit England.

P.S. June 2018 for our visit below is a forced-choice, since the options only go back to July 2017
