“51 shades of maggie”
Reviewed 21 February 2014 via mobile

Went to see this with some mates it was really very funny. It's not for prudes tho. Its sort of based on 50 shades of grey, not sure if you need to read the book to get some of it. I havent but enjoyed the show.

“A delightful throwback in time - gorgeous”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

Although it suffered severe fire damage years ago and was rebuilt, this fact is easily missed when you are inside the theatre which is like a rewind in time. Staff welcome you on arrival, the auditorium is beautiful and it can be reached on foot from the town's attractions due toits central location in the High Street. There is a good array ofevents throughout the year too.
