Nice old fashioned theatre in central Manchester. Gets some great shows and events and has a great atmosphere.
Had a fantastic Saturday night watching Phantom. The show is stunning - outstanding performances - I even cried at the end! The theatre itself is very traditional and the architecture is beautiful. In places it possibly looks a little worn - but I think this actually adds to its charm. Perhaps the only downside was how far the circle seating... More
