“She Stoops to Conquer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

Buxton Opera House is great for a night out for a change instead of the same old. The atmosphere is good, think they need to update their toilet facilities and close the doors during the performance to keep the heat in. Would go again definately but not to see this performance.

This is a beautiful theatre which I can thoroughly recommend just for the experience. We saw Morecambe and it was excellent and reasonably priced

“Morecambe - Cracking Play, Cracking Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Went to see the play, Morecambe on 24th May at the Opera House. The play was excellent, despite the Opera House being half full, which was a real pity. Lovely old venue though with very attentive staff.
