“Abba tribute show featuring Voulez Vous”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

This is a great venue,a small theatre with a wide range of shows. We'll organised with good facilities for disabled people and plenty of free parking. Tonight was a wonderful show. We particularly enjoyed the family atmosphere and were pleased to see families with children and grandparents all enjoying the show. Plenty of singing and freedom to dance in the aisles. The cost of our tickets was really good value in comparison to the charges made by larger theatres. I would urge people to give it a try.

“Little Theatre, big atmosphere”
Reviewed 24 December 2013 via mobile

It's easy to get to by car although the parking is not great if you do not get there early. There is an overflow car park but it was a muddy walk back to the main doors.
Yes, it is a 'little' theatre and there is not much room in the foyer but there are plenty of friendly staff to quickly guide you to avoid congestion. The stalls are intimate but it's good as you get a good view from anywhere and close enough to the stage to feel part of the play/pantomime.
We went for a pantomime and were well entertained. There were good lighting effects and a brilliant automated dragon which stretched right into the audience. This was far better than I expected.
We will return to this theatre again.

“drifter on tour”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Usually use this theatre two or more times a year depending what shows are on offer.
A small theatre which gives plenty of comfort and a close up feeling of interaction with the stage.
