Amateur panto

Rapunzel had us laughing with the 4 year old dancers as they fought tiredness in an evening performance. This production was an ambitious dance school panto that just about worked.

Best pantomime I have ever been to. Went Thursday evening and never laughed so much. All of the cast were excellent, funny ghost, good singing and dancing.

We spent the most enjoyable, entertaining evening at the Frankie Valli "Let's hang on" tribute act. The theatre is intimate, the sound quality superb and the seating comfortable and roomy. The staff are extremely welcoming and obliging. We will most definitely be booking for future concerts and events here.

This maybe a small theatre but the seating is very comfortable, my partner and I saw the Chicago Blues Brothers here. It was just a shame that there was not that many people seeing them, this is the second time we have seen C B B and yet again they put on another great show.

Visited the theatre on a Friday night to see Phantom of the Opera. It was my first visit and I had a lovely time. It was very clean - even the toilets- and the refreshments were reasonably priced. The only things I could find fault with was the seating which wasn't very comfortable and there was no air conditioning and... More

Tickets to see Sean Lock in the local theatre- great night although he was obviously trying some new, very hit and miss material. I laughed at most but not sure he had us all convinced. Great small venue to see some big names trying new material but could do with more leg space for us taller folks

This production by a youth theatre company was really brilliant, for me it was easily as good as the show in London's West End. The singing of the female principles deserves especial praise. The theatre itself is a really nice intimate venue, recently refurbished with spotless (if cramped) toilets. Really friendly and helpful staff makes a visit here feel like... More
