Russell Watson show very badly organised, late starting, stewards didn't seem to have much knowledge of seating plan. Seats were awful, uncomfortable and crammed in with no leg room . Thank goodness for Russell !!

Great theatre holding only about 300 people. Free car park next door (up a small ramp). They put on a wide selection of different acts. Recommended venue.

Be here quite a few times now mainly to see comedy shows. It's a good place for it due to its small size, you get a good view from all seats and there is always a good atmosphere.
