Often attend plays or Gigs and usually have seats in the dress circle which suits us as long as you do not have a pillar in front of you. The extension adds to the theatres attraction with bars and stairs to each area. An enjoyable...More

Absolutely amazing! The sets and costumes were visually stunning and the dancing mesmerizing. This is the best adaptation of The Nutcracker I have ever seen. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you to all involved. Brilliant.

Great matinee performance of Mamma Mia, outstanding contributions from all cast members. Made me laugh and cry. Just what great theatre should be. Only downside was £34.80 for 4 wines. Fortunately we snuck a few of our own past security. Ha ha ha!!!!

Can only agree with the above - expensive as you would expect at a theater - but also not really very nice, so not worth "treating " yourself on a special day out !
