Went on Saturday 11th February to see Curious Incident. Fabulous play! I have read the book and found it difficult to imagine how it would be portrayed on stage. It was achieved magnificently! Great cast. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Have been to two music gig in this venue too, both great experiences. Highly recommend.

We have regularly attended the theatre . The staff are always friendly and welcoming . The price of interval refreshments are very high although ticket prices reasonable when measured against London theatres

Extortionate bar prices - almost £20 for 2 bottles of doom bar and a large white wine. You could feed a family of 4 for that.
