We go to the rock & roll pantomime every year, and it is brilliant! The cast are so talented, playing the various instruments in the background when they are not on stage performing. An excellent production well worth seeing.

A small place could do with more toilets downstairs as they get really busy in the intervals and people start to block the pathways but overall a lovely place to go

Never disappointed when I visit the New Wolsey Theatre. Whether it with a group of friend or just my husband. Even had pre-meal dinner before.

Went to see Sinbad and it was a rock concert type show. Fast & Pacey with a very adaptable cast made it a brilliant show. Generally the prices are very good but like any theatre they've got to survive so it's well priced overall for the plays, shows and performances they cover over the year. It has a small restaurant...
