“Sensational Acoustics and Tremendous Refurbishment!”
Review of The Deco

The Deco
Ranked #25 of 60 things to do in Northampton

Attraction details
Reviewed 2 February 2015 via mobile

Visited the Deco as part of a Recce for a concert in November 2015. It may not look like much on the outside but with parking next door in St Michaels and an excellent Art Deco refurbishment inside I think this is a hidden Gem.

It can seat up to 900 and has very "bright" and "immediate" acoustics which is great for the kind of musical events I wish to put on. Staff are helpful as well.

We went to see Wizards of Oz on Boxing day what a great idea the children loved every minute my youngest is 4 and he was invited up in stage to do a little dance at the end it was great fun.

The waiting lounge is very small and isn't really big enough for the theatre prior to going in to the seating area, I felt a little cramped. When we were invited into the auditorium we were 5 rows from the front but unfortunately we had a rather large family in front of us and my son had to sit on my lap in order to see properly and he couldn't see Dorothy'a red shoes , other than that we had a great time and we will go again.

Greeted cordially enough initially by the bowler hatted person until he realised we booked through Groupon.Then we were treated as the Hoi polloi.(the commonality) not a good attitude,if people hadn't booked through the excellent Groupon their seats wouldn't have been so well filled.!!!
