Have visited the Elgiva to see films and theatre and some dancing events and have always felt comfortable and well served. Always worth keeping an eye in the schedules as they have plenty of good shows for all age groups.

Smashing theatre,, highly recommended good names and tributes in a small town that you see without having to pay over the top prices, great facilities with bar and cafe, only issue waiting for toilet at half time break, but same goes most places...

Have been here numerous times to see different performances. Pleasant building with polite, helpful staff. Toilets could do with an upgrade but that's a minor detail.
