The Wycombe Swan is the worst theatre I've visited in a long time. The show's they put on are generally awful in choice, the theatre itself is unattractive and run down and the people working front of house are generally rude. It needs new management...More

Lovely little theatre. Not much seating in the foyer areas. Ladies loos upstairs in desperate need of some TLC! We saw Snow White as I’m a strictly fan. Overall a little disappointing. The show was rather disjointed with no real story line. Was hoping for...More

Took the family to see Snow White at the Wycombe Swan and whilst it was busy in the car park the show was excellent. The 10 of us thoroughly enjoyed it. Well done Brendan Cole and the rest of the cast.

If there hadn't been a character called Snow White we wouldn't have had a clue what the story was, supposedly, about. The whole show was a mish mash of apparently random story elements mixed in with some current day pop numbers that had nothing to...More

I have used The Swan fairly regularly. The shows are invariably very well produced and performed but that has nothing to do with the way the theatre itself operates. It's not helped by the very poor design of the front of house spaces which easily...More

I have never found a theatre or events venue that gives the expected finish time of a show. I believe this is due to it being a live performance and allows for any unexpected changes to the programme. However, I have... More

Some restricted viewing from the very back, highest level but only on the extreme sides - you will find the stair hand rail is the only concern but as they're small square metal tubing it''s not as bad as it could be
