We attended The Opera House Theater for the last night of Micky Flanagan's 'An Another Fing' warm up tour. There are loads of great bars and restaurants in the Winter Gardens for pre and post show drinks and the theater itself is fab. Really enjoyed the experience.

Was here for a conference and once again it was run very smoothly. Staff were friendly and helpful. The security staff were nice and courteous. The people who ran the conference and the winter gardens were really nice and on hand to help with any issues we had. Great venue once again

Birthday treat for me with my sister. The theatre still has its Victorian charm whilst being in s modernised area of the town. Brought back lovely childhood memories if going to the ballet as a child with my dad. Good disability all round.
