We had booked tickets to see the popular farce 'The Play that goes Wrong' our seats were in row A numbers 27 & 28, when we found our seats we were disappointed because the actual seat was very narrow, there was no leg room (I am only 5'3" and my knees were squashed against the barrier) I also could only...

Hi there, Thank you for your review. Seats A 1-3 and 27-29 in the Circle are advertised as Reduced Legroom and bookers are notified by Box Office (if booking over the phone or in person) or on our website. The ticket prices for these seats are also slightly cheaper to reflect this. We're very sorry you were not comfortable during... More

Not the first time I have been to the Arts I perhaps go a couple of times a year. My wife and I saw 'Gaslight' which was very enjoyable. The theatre has been updated often but still comes across as old style which i nice, the entrance and bar/seating areas are modern but the theatre itself is a bit dated.... More

This is a lovely little theatre which now has some really good plays coming over the next few months. We went to see Gaslight which was brilliant. The cast were really good as you would expect. It is nice to go to a local theatre and experience London West End shows without the hassle of travelling to London.

A small group of U3A members enjoyed a super visit to the Cambridge's famous Arts Theatre. It is a charity and doesn't receive money from national funds. Our guide was very informative and provided lots of opportunity to inspire our imagination about all the aspects of the theatre. We covered every part except the dressing rooms. These, we were told,... More

Went to musical Anne yesterday. Brilliant cast - little girls singing and dancing very good. Just expensive show program and ice cream: cost £3.50 each. And you don't need to put your best dress on, as an audience sits in the theatre in a couts.
