Went with family of all ages. This is a brilliant theatre and I go every year at least once. Maybe twice. Pantomimes always a great hit.

Excellent entertainment choices, with well-planned website and brochure showing future performances. Access for disabled people is spot on and seating arrangements are good - don't forget to state that a visitor is disabled, to qualify for ticket price discounts!

Good access to the bars, with efficient interval drinks. The sound was excellent from the full pit orchestra, and visibility was also great. The WNO production of 'Kiss me Kate' was most enjoyable. The seating was a little cramped, however.
