“Lovely theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Went to the Corn Exchange in March to see Cupids Inspiration. The theatre itself is very intimate and the seating is well thought out. We were in row C and the view of the stage was fantastic. The bar area is very stylish and the drinks available was impressive; as was the lady who was on her own and doing very well to serve the multitude. Management take note, she needs some help.

“Lovely theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013

This is a lovely theatre in Stamford, Lincs. Saw an opera there, we were in row k, middle. Very good seat, could see easily. Only one thing that could be a problem for people with walking difficulties or bad knees, the theatre slopes down. The walkway down the centre of the seats slopes substantially, which of course means that on the way back up after the performance it could be a problem too.
Bought a drink in the interval quite easily, got served fairly quickly.
Great venue.

“A Great Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

We have been here a couple of times now.
Once to see the ELO Experience and the other night for the Michael Jackson Tribute.


Yes the slope is steep and the wife uses a crutches so the slope is formidable.

So we sit up near the back and because of the steepness we can see everything. So in our particular case its a good thing. Oh and old age is catching up and being right up close to those speakers would have had my ears ringing.

The Staff are excellent. Always friendly and helpful. I believe they are volunteers and so are happy to be there. Bonus.

We intend to visit quite a few more times.

“Sunday Wedding Ceremony & Reception”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

Wow.....Magical....Very different.....Relaxed......Friendly......Very helpful

These were just some comments from the guests attending our daughter's Wedding.
Carla had lots of ideas about how she wanted her wedding to Andrew to be......all and more were achieved by Judith, Albert and volunteers. The Reception was superb so a big thank you goes to Andy Binder and his girls too.
The actual ceremony was on stage, complete with sparkling back cloth and falling petals......magical.
Considering this was the Corn Exchange's first wedding on the stage and in the restaurant below
all went without a hitch. As it was a wet October day it was an ideal place as plenty of comfortable seats and an open bar kept everyone happy while photos were taken.

A brilliant place to hold a wedding with a difference....and as it is a charity all the money helps to keep this marvellous old building functioning.
