Small cosy theatre, Good amature production. Saw a Alan Bennett production, the main actor was not able to attend so another actor took his place and had to read from a script all thru. But that did not spoil anything, he was the best on stage, how he kept this up I do not know.

We thought it was going to be awful as an amature production, but it was well performed and entertaining. We were able to grab a nice glass of wine before and during the interval

Fascinating tour of this old Theatre by very enthusiastic staff who made the place come alive. Had the opportunity to go onstage, back stage, in the wings, dressing rooms, prop rooms etc. Brilliant tour can't recommend enough. Will definitely return for a show now.

the theatre was small but well attended a victim of its own success my wife found when visiting the distinct lack of toilet facilities for the ladies we found the staff helpful and a variety of performances to suit any theatre goer the play was played by some very professional actors a most enjoyable experience at a price affordable to...

Different and very educational, we enjoyed it a lot but for families with young children it could be a bit boring

This was a first trip to this theatre. A marvellous venue with a great atmosphere. Very professional and well run theatre which we thoroughly enjoyed. There is a good bar selling local ale with friendly staff throughout the place. Tickets for shows are all reasonably priced.
