Lovely evening, wonderful performance, excellent staff and volunteers. Drinks and snacks very reasonable. All seats have a fab view and the car park opposite only charges £2. Well worth a visit

A great little theatre which is easy to access in Leicester. It's a bit quirky in places, the bar (layout, decor, contents) reminded me of the early 90s, and the toilets of the late 80s but this didn't impair my visit in any way. It looked to me like some of the staff were volunteers as they were super friendly... More

Went to a production of Yes Prime Minister, the whole cast were good, the three main characters brilliant. These are amateur actors but are equally as good as many professional companies.

A thespian relative of mine lives locally and we travel from Hertfordshire to attend the theatre at least once yearly to support and enjoy. Supported by an excellent group of volunteers, the Theatre has a wonderful and prestigious heritage. Our recent visit to see The Full Monty was just as enjoyable as our first experience a few years ago. Always... More

A great trip out to see this Panto. This was enjoyed by all that went of different ages. Would go again. The seats were good although the interval food etc were a bit expensive. Park early over the road.

Its now turned into a family tradition, Nanny & Granddad take the oldest of the Grandchildren to the little Theatre for a festive treat every year and this year was no exception, what a great performance and as always there were plenty of jokes and "look behinds" a few water guns came in very handy with kids and adults dodging...

My wife & I recently went to the Little Theatre to see The Music Hall Tavern show, we'd seen them in Lanzarote last year & knew they were doing a tour of England & Ireland early this year so we booked tickets for the Little Theatre as it was the nearest on to where we live. When we got inside... More

Saturday night we visited the Little Theatre in Leicester to see a production of Rope. It was a great night out. The bar is a very nice place to drink & relax before heading up the stairs to the auditorium. There is a nice atmosphere in there , something bigger places don' t have. Rope is a great film &...
