We attended a Rohl Dahl performance (George's Marvelous Medicine) a month ago and also enrolled our child on one of Rose's Theatre's drama/performing schools this holiday. Well run, plenty of information and knick knacks around the corridors, and the theatre facilities are good.

A cosy and intimate venue, which punches above its weight in terms of the plays and stars that it attracts. Nice acoustics, good bar, easy parking across the road in a multi-storey. Be careful when buying a seat that it is actually a ‘seat’ –...More

We were pleased to visit the Rose Theatre for a production just a few days after it celebrated its 10th anniversary. It is a well-designed space for theatre and other arts productions and we very much enjoyed our visit. The production of "Much Ado About...More

Yes. There is a lift for wheelchairs and very helpful staff to assist with correct route to cafe. (The lift is set back, so easier to ask those who know)
