Visited to see Jekyll and Hyde on a Sunday Matinee. Excellent production and lovely little theatre. Very intimate and friendly. Well worth a visit.

Visited the theatre for a live music show (progressive rock). Quite a large bar area with plenty of room. Clean toilets. The auditorium feels quite intimate with good acoustics. From what I saw there are no restrictive views. Would not hesitate to visit again.

Saw twelfth night, what a great show! Theatre facilities were also great, drinks weren't too expensive. No parking though, so this cost nearly £10 for 5 hours parking.
