“Good productions, uncomfortable seats”
Reviewed 28 October 2012

We have been to this theatre many times and have always found the productions to be very good. Well performed and produced. The stage is relatively small and it is quite astonishing what the scene makers can do with it. The productions are very varied and often quite ambitious. The atmosphere is always friendly and there is a bar andefficient tea and coffee facilities at the interval. The only drawback is the somewhat uncomfortable seats of quite significant age tightly put together. Also beware of the radiators as they can be a bit too much if you are alongside one. Parking on the road outside is usually OK, unless it is a popular production and you have left things a bit late when a bit of a walk may be necessary - no problem unless it is very wet.

“Excellent local theatre”
Reviewed 21 October 2012

Very small and cosy local theatre that is very friendly and puts on a range of productions each season while knowing it's limitations. All seem to be very professional, well acted, well produced etc. And the range is sufficient to please everyone. We've never been disappointed. The attached bar is also cosy.

“very tiny”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

It's really up close and personal theatre as the building is narrow and long. If you sit at the front you are on top of the stage, whilst at the back you seem a long way away. Drama Festival entertaining
