“Pantomime”
Reviewed 7 December 2013 via mobile

Great show, only gripe was sound occasionally drowned out some of the singers, and why was the Band at one side under a box instead of the orchestra pit, so they were hidden away. Good atmosphere

“Great Theatre”
Reviewed 23 November 2013 via mobile

Visited here to see Sarah Millican, the theatre is in a superb central location and is easy to find once pointed in the right direction. The seats are comfortable with reasonable leg room. Clean theatre and would happily visit a show there again.

“Value for money ”
Reviewed 10 November 2013 via mobile

Regularly visit this theatre as although it is a cheaper option to the theatre royal they have many good shows on for the children as reasonable prices and family deals my kids love going and enjoy the feel of the excitement in the air! They also offer booster seats for small kids which is great!! Only problem I found was a over the top seat assistant how complained and wag finger if you even moved or looked funny I also found her telling my children off for drinking there slush the wrong way!! Get a grip they are excited kids anyway great place great value for money thanks again for making it special
