When a child we used to come as a family on a regular basis for the matinee on a Saturday afternoon. Coming as an adult seems strange - everything has shrunk! A beautiful building with a real atmosphere inside, a feeling of timelessness.

Hull New Theatre is under reconstruction and will not be in use for several more months. The stage is being made larger along with the massive reconstruction which will eventually mean it will be able to hold larger performances that require a large stage. I am looking forward to the time it will reopen its doors to great entertainment. Then... More

The Hull New Theatre is absolutely beautiful inside. Immediately your transformed to the days of the old music hall! The shows ive been to see (usually state circus!) have always been very good, but part of the night out for me is just being in that beautiful building! The only downside is there is no real waiting area if you... More

Had a lovely afternoon here watching poles apart john gober play was funny. The theatre was nice and comfortable but think they forgot to put heating on my legs and hands cold! is in a good central spot for shopping before/after the play.

I went to watch Thriller Live on 31/10/15 at the 4pm showing. It was fantastic! Cleopatra Higgins has an amazing voice! I watched Thriller Live in London 2 years ago, this venue was so much better, we had a good view, it's a really nice theatre and easy to find.

Myself and my young daughter went to see Hairspray (which was fantastic, as good as when I saw it in the West End). It is a great large venue and our only criticism was the seats were a bit tatty and uncomfortable. We would definitely go again.
