  • Love, love, love this local theatre. Full of atmosphere regardless of which studio you are in. The main theatre is beautiful after being recently re-modelled. Staff are wonderful and always on hand to help. Local am dram productions have never disappointed! From touring West end shows to local productions, this theatre has it all.

  • Attended this evening, first time for myself and me daughter to see a panto. Was absolutely amazed, brilliant job by the cast, I'm ready to book mother goose for next year. The ugly step sister were hilarious would go and just see them as stand up. 5* brilliance well done everyone.

  • A fantastic theatre, good views from all seats and a decent acoustic. They have the usual rubbish tribute bands and the like but also some high quality plays and musicians. You need to book well in advance for the better quality showed.

  • Amazing experience and brilliant as usual. Staff were amazing and took the time to talk to Gary who was with us.. much appreciated made his day.

  • Watched Hair spray and had a fantastic afternoon, seating was comfortable and we could clearly see the stage from the upper circle. The show was lovely and fun and the theatre met expectations. Well set out and although very crowded moving about was seamless and no long wait for the facilities.
