I go to several shows a year at Kings Hall, amateur and professional, and I have never been disappointed. Choose seats carefully. I always choose an aisle seat so I can lean sideways if someone tall sits in front of me. Bar prices high so I take my own interval drink.

Regularly attend shows at the KHWG. Excellent venue with good sound system and lighting. Bars a bit pricey but it's not a pub. Traditional Victorian Theatre brought back to life.

Went to Kings Hall Ilkley recently to see Counterfeit Stones. A great night and lovely venue but spoilt by seating rows being far too close together so difficult to get past other people a bit more space with less seats would have been so much better and safer.

Visited for the May school of dance production. Although the hall is dated it adds to its character. All the facilities are clean and the theatre staff were friendly. The bar prices were reasonable which is always good! It's right in the centre and has great public transport options literally on its doorstep! A great venue for the performers.

The King's Hall and Winter Gardens are a glorious asset to Ilkley. The Ilkley Literature Festival is one of the most important in the country.
