It is well worth taking a tour of this 117 year old theatre. In an hour and a half during the day we were shown around the auditorium, back stage and the dressing rooms. We all felt that we had been given a real feel and a number would like to back.

I had an issue booking tickets online,so called the box office. The staff were extremely lovely and polite, they sorted out everything for me and were happy to do everything they could to help. I requested the tickets be posted to me (so I could give them to my partner for his birthday) and they arrived the next day. Brilliant... More

This is a beautiful old theatre, with outstanding interior architecture. It is very well appointed, with two bars. Like many old theatres, the seats lack leg room, so if you are tall, be sure to pick your seat carefully. Extremely pleasant and helpful staff. A great night out.

Front row seats to see "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels". Rewarded with professional players, excellent orchestra and good value entertainment. Staff courteous and helpful throughout. Toilet facilities can get stretched at the intervals but other than that usual format of pre-ordering drinks and large bar upstairs keeps the evening going. Seats are comfortable (plenty leg room at the front!) and the audio... More

Back at Harrogate theatre for another great performance from the master of HP Lovecraft adaptation. Again the use of the studio meant that you felt part of the performance. Great theatre staff as always and a great night out.

Excellent visit to somewhere I haven't been since I was tiny. An absolute Harrogate institution that we're lucky to have. Didn't realise how many great things go on here and such a good size big enough for a great atmosphere but still feels intimate.

This was our 5th Panto and ooh I can't remember how many times we have been to the theatre over the years....We had been at the Royal Hall (huge!) on Thursday night and you forget just how small and intimate a theatre this one is. We had front row circle seats (my husband doesn't do audience participation!) and had a... More

Went to see the Christmas Panto with the family, beautiful old theatre but definitely in need of a refurb. Seats small and uncomfy and with some long legged teenagers it was difficult for them to get comfortable. No disabled access and so difficult for my mobility disabled mother to manage the stairs, particularly at the end when everyone was pushing... More

Love Harrogate theatre, beautiful building. Took my little grandchild to see a panto for the first time, front row circle sweats. Great view, comfy seats. Pantomime was really good, great fun. Can't wait for the next one
