The Landmark theatre Ilfracombe: from its awful 'Madonna's Bra' chimneys to the under-used and half-hearted interior with bland shows and an expensive Café: this place is a huge disappointment. Even the TIC was depressing and sorely under-staffed on a busy Saturday afternoon. The lone, unskilled...More

This ugly seafront centrepiece simply does nothing for Ilfracombe Victorian history nor its coastal setting, whatsoever.

We stopped at the Landmark Theatre for half an hour recently, and it's in quite a pleasant location, even if it does look absolutely hideous from the outside. The TIC, gardens and Cafe were open. With all the grockles, the toilets were terrible and without...More

What a great way to celebrate the re opening of the theatre. The West Down school put on a brilliant school production which had us all laughing from start to finish. The jokes were so corny, but they are the best kind. Huge shout out...More

When visiting Ilfracombe was dissapointed to find the theatre had closed but on speaking to the lovely manager she informed me they were in the process of getting it reopened.

Ilfracombe and North Devon really must wake up to their self-appointed seaside and hospitality responsibilities. Especially the local authorities and several businesses including North Devon Theatres management, who should be ashamed of themselves. This architectural disaster needs some new blood and good management to make...More
