I recently went to the Woodville Halls with my mum and my sister to see country superstars. What an amazing performance!! We all thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely go back to see it if it was on again.

I came here to see Mamma Mia with my mum who uses a wheelchair. The staff were very helpful in getting us into the theatre. We chose to sit in a normal seat rather than at the side. The chairs were comfy too.

Great Panto brought into the 21st century. Lots of humour for both children and adults. A brilliant cast and wonderful costumes. Great view of the stage and could hear everything that was said. Ticket value was worth the money.

We’ve been to lots of family shows here and always enjoy ourselves. Staff are friendly and helpful. Very impressed by Panto Jack and the Beanstalk - great fun, the kids loved it. The venue is small - perfect for kids who get easily overwhelmed in...More

Yes, you will be in the main seating area, which is a fair place to sit.
