The Curve is a unique theatre in the middle of Leicester. There is a lovely cafe serving hot and cold food. They even have a changing places for disabled visitors, a large, clean space with a hoist and bench (which is rare in facilities these days) The actual theatre plays host to a number of amazing performances including local charities....

Have to agree with previous reviews the casting of Danny was disappointing for me. The enthusiasm and energy of the cast as a whole however was brilliant.

Energetic and fun exercises session for older folk. Bollywood/ Zumba/ modern dance routines run by fun teachers. Lovely big dance studio generally used by professionals in practice.

I visited Curve to see a show - Grease last week. The building is well laid out and you walk round in a circle. Everything is well signed and laid out and the staff were welcoming and knowledgeable. The seating in the theatre was very good, we sat at the side which was slightly raised above the stalls and each... More

We took a group of disabled clients to see the dementia friendly performance of the musical grease on 11th January 2017. We cannot praise the theatre staff, volunteers, setting of the environment and relaxed atmosphere highly enough. Other theatres should take a note from the Curve when providing performances as every thought was taken to cater for the wide diversity... More

Went to see Grease The Musical recently with friends and thoroughly enjoyed the show. The building itself is a great example of modern architecture with a quirky touch.

I went to see this live show at The Curve in Leicester on 7th of January 2017. What an amazing show! The actors were brilliant and if you are going with a four year old, your family, friends or grandparents you will all laugh out loud, enjoy the show and leave wanting to see their next show. AMAZING!

The theatre was good - great fun production of Grease and the seats were most most comfortable with plenty of leg room unlike so many of the really old theatres. Access was good and toilets plentiful and clean ! Bar was poor - average prices ie not great but not ridiculous but the plastic cups were poor ! you can... More
