I go to the theatre every Christmas with my family! Not only are the shows really fantastic but the staff go above and beyond to make sure you have a good visit. I always have a great time and look forward to it each year.

This astounding piece of architecture on the banks of the River Usk has a good café with friendly staff. Excellent place to sit and watch the river go by. The theatre hosts a variety of performances, and there's an art gallery too.

Saw the Bowie Experience here last night and it was my first visit to the theatre part. It has that lovely cosy old time feel about it which is so rare these days. Well worth a visit if there anything on you fancy watching.
