Visited the pantomime on a Saturday evening. The show was great. Served straight away in the bar despite it being a sell out. We were in the front row of the grand circle and the view was fantastic although not much leg room. Good evening

We have been to the Theatre Royal's panto for several years now and it just gets better every year. The Theatre Royal don't waste their money on so called celebrities but spend it on a fantastic set, costumes and special effects. The usual cast surpassed themselves with their jokes, singing and dancing. The children were in awe as were the... More

We went to see Northern Ballet perform Beauty and the Beast. It was fabulous. The stage props were brilliant as were the dancers. The theatre is very beautiful with comfortable seats and a lovely bar for the interval. Parking not easy but right on the metro Monument stop

I visited here last weekend as part of a group to see Mary Poppins. As usual in the Theatre, the show was fantastic. The venue allowed for good views of the stage throughout. As a bonus, Mary Poppins flew above our heads, which my 8 year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed. We got straight in without issue, found our seats easily... More

We have visited this theatre several times since its refurbishment a few years ago. It's really gone up a level! The legroom in the stalls is really good and no complaints here about seats or decor - it's lovely. They also provide free booster seat cushions for children which some places cash in on. Shows here are never cheap but... More

The only downfall was during intervals you could only pay by cash... surely now contactless is just as quick?? Member of staff serving on kiosk could also... More

Looking for somewhere to eat near where we were we called in at the theatre restaurant. My granddaughter and myself ordered the steak which was very tasty. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we would definitely go back
