Theatre is showing its age. Usual prices for a show In the bar etc. Good on street parking nearby free after 1800. Lee Nelson was average at best I personally wouldn’t go and see him again on his next tour

We went to see Rip it Up a couple of weeks ago. Our seats were really good especially as we had booked restricted view seats in the stalls but we had a really good view. The show was brilliant and there was a really good...More

The comedy club is on the last Friday of every month- you don't know who's on but usually it's worth taking the risk . The drinks are expensive but at only £11-75 a ticket they have to make money somehow. We've seen really good comedians...More

The staff were pleasant and friendly. Seats were reasonably comfortable. Unfortunately there must have a been an issue with water...the toilets wouldn't flush and also the taps only had a trickle of water.

Recently went to the theatre in Harrogate and this one is larger but not as opulent. Nice overall with large enough bars. Slightly more legroom this time. Shame that the play, Seriously Dead was awful!

Hi there. The balcony gives a really good central view of the stage. It's not as high as a lot of theatres - but avoid the first 3 rows (there is a safety rail) and the view is good. Speak to any of the box office staff... More
