Friendly staff, excellent shows and comfy seats. Bar expensive though and crowded. Best get to the toilets first in the interval too to avoid waiting.

We tend to avoid Weston, but this is a great venue for comedy gigs, big enough for atmosphere but not so big that you lose the intamacy needed for good stand up, good value local parking as well.

I have been to many shows and also performed many times as a member of WODS. It is a versatile theatre equally as good for professional shows, concerts, dance schools and one man shows.

Hello - I want to book for Ben and Holly in June but we have not been to this theatre before as we live quite a way away. Which seats would you recommend so that a 4 year old would be able to see the stage well. Thank you Kind regards Hazel.

Ive been here a few times and I think that all the seats are good. For a small child , I would say centre near the front would probably be best.
