Great theatre with a good selection of plays and musicals. Local theatre is an opportunity to see some fantastic actors in well known plays, with usually a low cost ticket. Check out the shows that are one here, it really is well worth a visit.

Made my first visit here recently Not the biggest theatre but quite intimate. Good view of the stage and plenty of leg room which is very important to someone of my height.

We went to see this show st the Dolman. The show was amazing. The theatre is really nice. Not too big so you feel close to the stage no matter where you sit. Parking is good on the nearby Kingsway Car Park. There are plenty...More
