“Great theatre and evening venue”
Reviewed 5 September 2012

I love the Wyvern - not as big as some theatres but they have their fair share of great shows. Also we went to their New Year Eve event last year which was great and have booked in for 2012.

“It lacks the character of other Theatres - but its very good”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

In the context of other theatres around the country, this lacks character of an older established theatre. That said, this can be deemed and advantage as the theatre is very well designed, wherever you sit you have great views of the stage, the sound carries very well throughout and the whole place is fresh and welcoming.

The list of events is varied and for a theatre that holds just over 600, there are some surprising acts turning out to perform there.

There is also a good mix of local talent being showcased and this isnt to be missed.
Food/drinks are reasoable and the access isnt bad either with numerous car parks close by.

I will be visiting again

“Pink floyde for ever”
Reviewed 24 August 2012

Amazing friend took me to a Pink FLoyd tribute evening. Band was as good as the real thing. Theater we sat one row from front so great seats. Drinks reasonable, the Wyvern offers so much choice and range of productions but we will be back

“Comedy showcase”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

We went to a comedy night which was very good, local comedians as well as those from further afield. Facilities are good and the place is in good condition. I would go to other events in the future.

“Great acustics”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

Saw Brit Flloyd here a few weeks ago, the show was awesome and a must for all Pink Flloyd fans but what made it was the excellent acustics in the theatre, which also enhanced an Eagles tribute band we saw earlier in the year ( TALON)
