Swansea grand is a lovely Old theartre, I have learned from bitter experience never ever book a seat in the circle, no leg room cramped and very uncomfortable. I always book early and get a stall seat in the middle far more comfortable and good leg room. I went to see the Micheal Jackson thriller tour on the 20th March... More

This was our first visit to the Arts Wing at Swansea Grand Theatre. The small performance area worked well for this play and we had a very pleasant evening out with some good belly laughs thrown in. Booking the tickets was straight forward and there was no wait to pick them up. Although the Arts Wing is at the top... More

We did not go to a show on this occasion, just a lunch hour visit. About a year ago the council-run theatre stopped the lunchtime menu of hot meals. This menu had previously proved to be popular and people voted with their feet when hot meals were withdrawn. I am now very pleased to say that the venue has regained... More

Was quite small inside had great seats, wherever you were sat would have been a good view! However you weren't allowed to take drinks from the bar inside which would have been handy to know beforehand and the red wine was horrible, apart from that a good venue to see a show

Plenty of parking nearby and if you're early enough there is a car park immediately across the road. It says max 3 hrs but lots of people used it for the evening performance. We had some drinks in the bar. The weather had been unexpectedly mild that day and unfortunately the heating was still on full blast, so it was... More

Visited for a performance of Sister Act as a party of 25 amateur musical theatre company members who are performing this show later on in the year. We had a block of seats over a few rows, but still together towards the back on the right hand side at a cost of £45 each. These were restricted view seats. We... More

The theatre’s auditorium is of Victorian design, being built in 1897. This is part of its charm and attractiveness to both patrons and to touring companies who want to bring such outstanding productions such as Sister Act to the venue. We have been able to adapt a number of areas in recent years to continue to thrive in the modern... More

We booked a table for 11 of us, before the Sister Act show. There was a good choice on the menu, and the meal arrived piping hot and plentiful! The staff were all very pleasant. Would definitely recommend this to others who have booked to see a show.
