Love visiting this theatre, my favourite. Full of character and steeped in history. Great architecture too. Glasgow Girls was fantastic. The raw energy, enthusiasm and love of what they were doing shone through from beginning to end. Wow, what a bunch they were! Thank you.

Went to see the twits here during half term and it was brilliant. A beautiful theatre that has kept all its charm whilst modernising it's facilities. The bar is lovely and has a good selection and the theatre seats are ample.
