I'm so pleased that we have a facility like this in aylesbury, both for myself and my children. The theatre itself is lovely although I advise that you don't allow the computer to select seats for you - select them yourself. In the main, the staff are helpful however, my most recent visit left me with a bitter taste in... More

We visited this theatre to see the Bee Gees show and really enjoyed it. We had trouble parking across the road so parked on the top floor of the multi storey car park next door. Just £2 for parking all evenin and would probably just go straight into here next time. We do like to look and feel of this... More

The Waterside Theatre is a large modern building where we went to see Pam Ayres who was brilliant. Seats are comfortable and there is plenty of leg room. There are two things that have put us off ever going there again. One is the exorbitant prices they are charging for food, drink and ice creams. The other is the dreadful... More

Took 2 friends to see thoroughly modern Millie at this venue last week. A cracker of a show Joanne Clifton was great, a chance to see she can do other things. Everyone in the theatre seemed to have a good time & the standing ovation at the end was so well deserved

Recently went to see Pam Ayres, this is a very pleasant theatre, good facilities and well laid out. The Foyer gets very crowded prior to the doors opening, so there can be some pushing from others. I personally found the snacks and drinks very expensive, but the experience was good and it was easy at the end to get out.

I visited to see a sell out rock concert at this popular venue. It was my first gig in Aylesbury since the days of the now legendary Friars Hall. Getting to the venue is very easy as the Waterside is a striking landmark bang in the town centre. There are plenty of car parks around & I chose the Walton... More

Occasionally, when the show appeals to us, we visit this theatre and have always found it to be a comfortable and happy experience. The theatre decor is splendid, and so far the shows have been excellent.

I have been here a few times and always with my young girls. This time was for the Christmas show (out third!). The facilities are fantastic, modern and clean. The parking nearby is reasonably priced and there is a pub across the road to get refreshments. The only downside to the theatre is that the snacks and drinks are a... More

Love the theatre my only gripe is they don't serve non-alcoholic beer or wine and the times I have been there, there never seems to be enough staff serving. I have to say though that the staff are very pleasant that work there.
