Well what can I say! New seats, new seating plan. Thanks Bristol Hippodrome for not letting us know that the 'end of row' seat wasn't actually in the same place! New seats were ok, armrest was awful, far too small. Also there were no binoculars!...More

Great theatre, great show, great seating, great audiences, what more is there to say. Saw Dreamboats and petticoats, our seats were easy to get to, and the show was amazing. This is my second visit to this venue and I loved it both times.
