This place is the business. Fantastic theatre. The panto was brilliant. Especially the 3D skit. It’s a grand little place that looks the part with its boxes. Balcony etc. A little jewel in the crown

I have not booked the box, but have watched those who did and they are usually having great fun. If you can afford it, then yes, it's worth it for a special experience.
