“For a small Venue it gets some great comedy acts”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

We live close by - and are always looking out to see who's coming up - especially comedy acts. We have seen Jo Brand twice, Marcus Brigstock, and others. The online booking is easy. The seats are well placed , the stage is ample and the bar, café and toilets are just the ticket during the interval - and drinks can be pre-ordered.

We will try and come and see a film here too now that it's gone digital. A great facility in Chesham.

“Great local theatre”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

The Elgiva is a great local theatre which shows a wide variety of different shows and films.
We have seen some excellent music, dramas and comedian's over the years often performances which are also touring the larger theatres. The theatre also gives local drama groups the opportunity to put on their performances.
The youth theatre opportunities are great, my child has attended 3 of the week long holiday workshops and had a fantastic time. She also regularly auditions for the Youth Drama productions which are produced to a very high standard and has a brilliant time!
The theatre is fairly small, seats are basic but ok, visibility is excellent wherever you sit.
Staff are always very helpful, good disabled access.
Great cafe.

Yes they have some good shows on and the prices are not too bad. I would recommend it. Staff were very friendly and the beer prices were acceptable.

“Get there”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

I've been to many plays and other shows there; the cinema and other events. It's great value and always worth a visit. An assset for Chesham!
