The lyceum offers a great selection of plays, ballet and musicals however the seating is really cramped and uncomfortable. There is hardly any leg room at all for me, let a lone my boyfriend who is over 6ft tall.

I love the lyceum the decor is stunning. The staff are wonderful. They serve our cow molly ice cream in the interval. The bar is reasonably priced. There are diasabled toilets. But the main loos are a real trek away. I wouldn't recommend the seats right at the back.

True theatre experience from the approach to the venue. Beautifully restored several years ago a real theatre with different levels from stalls to circle to balcony with boxes too. Staff friendly and efficient. Show is always a factor in a theatre visit but the Lyceum is always a great experience
