First time visit here to see a sixties show. Seats are comfy with good legroom. Sound and lighting are very goof. Only one entrance and exit to stalls causing delays. Long queues at very small toilets. Drinks are expensive.

Lovely place to enjoy a before and after show drink. Lovely and clean and well looked after. Has a car park either in front of the building or behind. Ideally situated for Weymouth sea front and town. Shows are always good and well maintained.

We've seen a few shows at the Weymouth Pavilion now and always enjoy our visit. The summer panto Pirates of the Pavilion was brilliant and both myself and my son loved the humour, songs and audience participation. Thoroughly recommended.
