I’ve been to The Drum several times now and I’ve yet to see a bad production. The theatre is easy to find being part of the Theatre Royal complex with parking right next door.

This was my first visit to The Drum and saw Napoleon Disrobed. Cracking little venue and a great performance. A much needed venue as it’s not all about the big stage, lots of costumes, huge audiences etc. Already booked to see other performances there.

Have been watching shows here for years and the standard is very high! A bit more experimental than The Lyric stage in the Theatre Royal and often better for it. Reasonably priced and often hold post show discussions.More
