Came here for the Christmas panto. Good theatre, stage big enough to see the show, even when far away. Theatre was clean and tidy, more female toilets could have been useful. Big downside- £3.40 for a pint of Coke, ridiculous! Apart from that nice visit, £70 for panto tickets, disheartening but no the fault of this place

Very helpful staff , I booked late but the lady was very helpful as I was making a phone booking . She took trouble to explain where the seats were in the auditorium , I explained that I must consult my husband first and she rang me back later . Good choice of performances throughout the year with some local... More

I visited the Queens theatre for the first time in April to watch the Cavern Beatles, it was one of the best nights of my life. I am young but have grown up with my family listening to the beatles so I was truly in my element. The atmosphere was amazing and the night was fantastic! The only downside was... More

Management response:

It's so wonderful to hear that you had a great time with us at the Queen's Theatre, we love to hear about all the fun our customers have. We have plans in place to extend our toilets, which will be a relief to our customers. As a charity, we struggle to get funding to make these big changes and will... More

Recently moved to North Devon and have just returned from what was apparently an AmDram show. We were not only impressed with the show but mostly we really liked the surroundings. The theatre has apparently been on this site as long as people can remember, albeit not always a playhouse. It is comfortable, inviting, quite small, but looking at the... More

Thank you for your comments. We’re very proud of our theatre and I’m glad you enjoyed your visit with us. I wanted to let you know that we are very aware of the lack of toilets on the ground floor, and it has always been a problem due to the fact we don’t have a lot of space in the... More

We visited recently to see Lulu, which was an excellent evening's entertainment. The theatre is quite historic, with some nice architecture reflecting it's age. The auditorium is intimate and the seats are comfortable with a decent amount of leg room. It is situated in the centre of Barnstaple and there is plenty of parking nearby.
