This is a beautiful theatre in the round which offers a broad programme. I've seen the ballet, pantos, plays and family sing-a-longs. All have been excellent.

As Patrons we see most plays each season and they tend to take priority in our calendar. "Cyrano" was a joy to watch and "Beryl" was amazing. The play's author, Maxine Peake, is a woman of many talents and should be proud of her play....More

Fantastic theatre and great shows Always something different going on and close to a pub so as you can have a meal before you watch a show. Also the theatre has a great bar and friendly staff.

The yearly pantomime is something that has to be seen; always very entertaining and well attended. Car parking is a bit limited for a popular event but there is always the pub next door! A good cafeteria for before and after the show too. You...More

The car park is just behind the theatre, it gets quite busy though so arrive a good 30mins before performance
