A proper old school theatre, I doubt much has changed in the last 50 years, but in a good way. Friendly and helpful staff, and a welcoming ambience, a real delight.

Last night saw the Bowie Experience at this amazing theatre! What an experience it was! This tribute act, with incredibly talented backing musicians really did the great man proud. How a theatre managed by volunteers consistently attracts such fabulous acts is truly amazing and a credit to all the volunteers who give their time. Long may it continue so please... More

We were visiting to see the Bowie experience on this occasion - but have been before to see Jo Brand, Jasper Carrot, Justin Hayward, Beyond the Barricade and others. The first thing to congratulate the theatre on is the range of acts they put on. With a good website, good ticketing and box office, and courteous staff it's a pleasure... More

One of the real highspots of my rather unexpected trip to the Isle of Wight was the chance to see the fantastic Go West who were playing the Shanklin Theatre during our holiday. My lovely friend had arranged tickets. I have seen GW ten times previously, all at much larger venues and, as well as being excited at seeing them... More
