Considering the Covid-19 pandemic we managed to keep our booking in between lockdowns. This was the first time we'd visited and it was fairly well organised considering the distancing and I think this had something to do with the queue at the cafe counter. We'd arrived just before it got really busy so I would recommend getting in early, especially if things continue as they are with social distancing and mask wearing. The theatre itself seemed well set up and the only thing I didn't enjoy was the need to wear a mask for the whole play (unless you were eating or drinking), which they were pretty strict with as there were plenty of people taking their masks off once sat down. I couldn't have spent much longer than 80 mins in the seats though (problems with hips) as were narrow. I'm grateful other people had to be two seats away so we didn't feel claustrophobic.

This is such a unique place to visit. Whether you are with your friends, children, independently this place caters for all experiences. The facilities are fantastic and so are the resources that are on offer here. Food is incredible however a little pricey but all worth it !

Having thoroughly enjoyed the performance of Christmas Carol,(An interesting, energetic, modern performance by talented enthusiastic actors., which was so uplifting at the present time.) we went for a drink. Sitting at adequately space tables we were served by Spencer who was both welcoming, pleasant and professional. First visit, a good facility, highly recommended

Wow, what a fantastic performance. We went to see A Christmas Carol last night, and loved every minute. The whole Storyhouse experience was nothing short of excellent from start to finish. Congratulations on a fabulous festive treat, and thank you for a wonderful night

So, here’s yet another idiotic idea. Storyhouse introduced a ‘bag check’ at the point of entrance😂 Apparently, the purpose is to search for any illegal items, such as drugs, weapons, alcohol, etc (according to a member of staff). Well done Storyhouse, you’ve reach a master level of stupidity! 👍🏻😂
