I don't often go to Barnsley but, when I do, I always make a point of dropping into The Civic and looking at the exhibitions that they have there and I've never been disappointed.

We went last week to see the Hull Truck Theatres production of Jekyll & Hyde. It was excellent! The cast of three gave an exceptional experience to all the theatre goers. The acting was A1 and I would recommend seeing it to anyone although I would not recommend it to families with children due to the nature of the story. Both during the interval and at the end of the play, the other members of the audience could be heard to be saying how well the play had been played out, especially the murder scene and that it was just a shame that there was not a larger audience to see it!

The tickets were priced at £14 for an adult and concessions were £10 so very well priced. There is a bar open before show and during the interval serving bottled drinks at reasonable prices. The venue is spotless and all the staff are helpful and friendly. There is disabled access too.

To see such a quality production of this play in my home town was fantastic. The only thing that spoilt the evening was that they had not managed to fill the venue so was lacking in atmosphere somewhat.

We are so pleased about finding somewhere so pleasant on our doorstep that shows quality productions that we are off to see something very different tonight!

Typical of Barnsley council,s attitude to the arts. This is NOT a Civic Theatre. It is a performance space on the top floor of the building appraoched via a back street! No atmosphere, no facilities. It coculd have been so much better had the council actually listed to the electorate!!

Please accept my apologies that you had a negative experience when you visited The Civic in 2012. Hopefully some of the changes that have been made since then will provide you with a more positive experience next time you visit.

I've been to The Civic a few times this year. To see family shows and live comedy and I have never once been disappointed. The staff are friendly, the bar reasonable and the venue spotless. It's a real shame that events here are often not sold out leading to empty seats. The exception was the performance Jack Dee which was sold out very quickly.
