A wonderful theatre. Visited many times. Enthusiast members and staff. Ever helpful. Some great shows. Always seems sold out whenever we've attended. Nice bar. Fair prices. Car park opposite. £2 for the evening. Last Pantaganent pub less than 50 meters away. And plans in place to expand. So they must be doing something right.

Lovely little theatre, in the centre of the shopping district. Easy walking distance from the train station. Don't worry if your seats are not near the front, you will still have a great view even if sitting on the back row.

Watched Knightmare Live! here last night. Is in a very central location. Very friendly staff and well organised. The theatre was packed but we managed to get served quickly at the bar during the interval. Likewise with toilet queues! Great venue for a show like Knightmare Live. Really enjoyed our evening. Thank you.

I went to the Little Theatre to watch the thriller, Sleuth. The play itself was everything I expected and very enjoyable. The venue is staffed by volunteers and the levels of service exceeded a lot of professional venues.

We went to see "Don't Dress for Dinner" at the weekend and can only say great things about the actors and also the little theatre in general. There is always a good relaxed kind of atmosphere which you don't always find in the larger London theatres and productions. Well done the Little theatre we will be back as many times... More

This really was one of the best pantomimes i have seen. Screech and Bellow the comedy doule act were exceptional and displayed a great sense of comic timing. Great all round family entertainment well worth the money.

We regularly visit family in Leicestershire and have visited this lovely theatre twice to see two very good plays. The set up is really nice - quite a big theatre (contrary to the name!) with a nice bar and friendly staff. The two plays - both performed by amateur casts - were excellent and the most recent (a play called... More
