“Very Old”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

Been dancing here in shows for the last 13 years, and hasn't changed a bit. Seats in auditorium very cramped and cold, which is strange as the stage is absolutely boiling

“Showing its age”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

Went to see two shows here during our holidays in August. The theatre is now showing its age.The main problem is the seats are very cramped. There is no leg room whatsoever.We actually went up the back to find some empty seats which had a little room. We were speaking to one of the employees there and he said that the theatre is full of asbestos and they are not allowed to move any seats etc to create more legroom. Its a real shame as with a little TLC and more legroom this could be a fantastic little theatre.

“Gerry and the Pacemakers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

Saw their show 5th September in the afternoon. What an amazing voice Gerry still has, rich and deep, almost operatic. The Pacemakers are all new members, but they can do a good tune and play very well. The seats in the theatre are quite cramped, worse than airline seats.!!! There is no air con either and it was uncomfortably warm in there, sweat was dripping off the performers. I cant remember the last time I was in this theatre, but it would have to be a good show to get me to go again.

“Under used”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

I recently went to see Gerry & The.Pacemakers at the Britannia Pier theatre. Yes the theatre is a little tired but apart from the Circus is the only remaining theatre out of the many that used to be in Yarmouth. It is still a charming theatre & the sound in there is still good. Such a shame that it is so under used with very few shows at all. Come on this theatre could be used most days in the main holiday season with shows to attract all age groups.
