Went to watch the ballet on a matinee performance and it was a great experience. The atmosphere was amazing and the place is well worth a visit. Staff were helpful and view was better than many other places.

Really excellent entertainment staged by CCADS. Great professional staging of the show, word perfect cast and a pack of dogs to top it off. Well done to all of them, some wonderful singing, scary child catcher and comedic pair of spies. A really good value...More

Watched Priscilla Queen of the Desert with amazing cast. All worked very well and the show just doesn’t stop leading into one scene from the last seamlessly. Just brilliant.

We love this theatre and our son is finally old enough to attend shows. The staff are so friendly and it's a beautiful building.

Went to a Take That tribute night. Easy access, run of the mill bar prices offset by reasonable ticket prices. Great seats with an excellent view and a really good atmosphere.
