Show was absolutely brilliant. The tiered seating going down to the stage rather than upward meant there was an excellent view of the stage. Only criticism is accessibility to seats. to enter the auditorium you have to go to upper level and work down. There is a lift but only on one side. There is no walkway to access the... More

My first visit, I hate to say, was disappointing, but that was the performing groups’ fault rather than the theatre’s. (Amateur does not have to mean amateurish, but the show was distinctly underwhelming.) Deciding to persevere, however, I soon returned to watch a live Hedda Gabler streaming, which pleased me mightily. Not having had my tea yet, I must say... More

I was here for a work dinner event. Whilst the theatre on the outside is not pleasant to look at , it is good on the inside with everything you need for an event - loads of room, good bar and good food. Plenty of parking a short walk away and good bus service.

Have visited here many times recently as the National Theatre live streaming events have been shown. Very enjoyable with comfortable seats with ample leg room and hand rails to assist getting up and down to the seats. Needed for my elderly mother! The bar is open for performance nights and helpful staff on hand to assist in any way.

In all the years the theatre has been open it is only in the last five years or so that the quality of the acts who have appeared there has risen ten fold if not more! I consider myself a regular user of the theatre,especially as it's only 100 yards from where my I live and have met many of... More
