How do you rate a theatre? The building itself is not one of my favourites. The two auditoria (main house and studio) are both very good. Acoustics are excellent sight lines very good, seats comfortable and the quality of productions has risen year on year....More

The Curve is an excellent venue. Drinks at the bar are very fairly priced. Scrooge was EXCELLENT. The cast were brilliant & could not be praised higher. Looking forward to our next visit.

We went to watch this show last night and it did not disappoint. We were at the back of the stalls but still had a great view. Amazing show, great music and cast. I’d say it’s up there with the best.
