Went to see the play Talent there on a Saturday night. Never been before but will definitely go again. Great theatre in the round, excellent seats and view. Bar had good choice of ales at decent prices. Good play with great cast and all round ace night out.

Many think theatre the reserve of the elite, or the snobs but let me tell you, that as a working clas girl who grew up on a council estate, I alway feel at home whenever I come to see a show.

What I thought would be a serious revival of a feminist play turned out to be half an hour of action padded out with music-hall songs by miked actors and choreographed furniture moving. I did not feel the way the play was presented gave any insight into the characters and their motivation.

Brilliant theatre sitting around in the circular gives you great views from ever angle and a feeling of interaction with the performers not seen a bad show here yet and the family Christmas pantos are brilliant for the children. There's a good sized bar and a little cafeteria with nice food. Great for the little ones 👍🏻🤗

A lovely little theatre, where you are really close to the actors. It is a thetre in the round and it just feels like you are part of the performance. It is well worth a visit to see either a play or to enjoy the music.

I have visited this theatre many times for plays, school events and even a ballet performance - the shows are high quality, they do a fantastic offer for under 25s (free tickets, first come first served) and sitting in 'the round' is a great experience. Artwork is displayed in the foyer, which is nice to look at during the intervals... More

My disabled husband and I booked to see Our Gracie at last minute.
