Went to visit Andrew Newton's the hypnotist's show - it's hilarious! The building is beautiful on the inside and has lovely architecture.

Seen two shows here in the last year. really enjoyed both visits.

The building is gorgeous, incredibly detailed, good viewing angles, plenty of room between rows, excellent staff.

Well located, right in the heart of Leeds, ideal for eating out, drinking before or after

A spontaneous decision to visit the theatre was rewarded with an excellent nights entertainment watching Miss Nightingale. From first entering the theatre we were greeted enthusiastically by the young lady behind the ticket office who showed a knowledge of the show to answer my wives queries. The theatre itself appears to be recently refurbished to a high standard.

I visited the theatre this Saturday for a show 'Miss Nightingale'. This was the first time that I had visited the theatre since the refurbishment. I was really impressed with the work that they have done, the theatre really is beautiful. The staff are really friendly, we visited both the bar and the ice-cream stall and prices were reasonable, the honey and ginger ice-cream is highly recommended! An excellent gem in my home city of Leeds, can't wait to see another show here!

Nothing to dislike
I went to see my fave singer Jonathan Ansell who had concert there,
Inside the auditorium was like stepping into a time machine
If you ever seen The good old days this is where it was filmed
