This theatre was built in 1901 and hasn't changed a great deal since. It is really lovely. You get to sit round tables rather than in rows. If you wave a flag (provided), they will bring drinks to your seat. Quant bar at the back. We will return.

To the backstage staff, costume designers,... More

Not the best panto you'll see but it was a friendly little theatre and I like how you are sat around tables and not in rows. I will definitely visit again.
