the theatre has some good shows, musicals, childrens shows seating is something to consider as some of the seats will disappoint you try to get a side seat in the stalls as these are the best

My first time at ballet. Absolutely enjoyed the production of Swan Lake by Mathew Bourne. Worth every penny. It was all very well organised. The restaurant is not very good, poor choice of food, would go next time rather somewhere else for dinner.

Some restricted viewing from the very back, highest level but only on the extreme sides - you will find the stair hand rail is the only concern but as they're small square metal tubing it''s not as bad as it could be
