Another fantastic show!
Jan 2020 • Family
My family and I just had another fantastic night at the empire theatre. We went to see the show Guitar Heroes, it was absolutely brilliant and worth every penny. It's hard to believe that a small theatre like the empire could hold such an excellent night out but we certainly were not disappointed. Can't wait for the next show Illegal Eagles. See you soon.

Its great to be able to go to the cinema and enjoy a cuppa while waiting for the film to start; and the cafe has a nice open atmosphere. We enjoyed the "Avengers Endgame" film too.

I have visited the empire a few times now and to be honest sometimes find the tickets for shows quite expensive, the shows themselves are great but the theatre itself is quite shabby and in need of a full refurb, the stage is in poor condition and the stage curtains look dirty and some even have large holes in then, there is lots of floor tape all over the stage and the seats are uncomfortable and squashed, surely with the money taken for shows they could put something back into the theatre to enhance customer experience. it would seam that more attention has been focused on the bar area, this too has it's issues where individuals who have obviously had too much to drink spoil the show for others especially those with children.

All good except !!
Apr 2018 • Friends
I’ve seen a few shows at the Empire and thoroughly enjoyed everyone of them, from musicals to the ballet and more. All very professional, costumes and music were fantastic and well presented. The only downside was the seats, a bit uncomfortable especially when you are in them for a few hours. Toilets are upstairs and could do with updating.

Blake!!!!!!!!!!!
Nov 2018 • Couples
Saw BLAKE at the Empire last night. Incredible- harmonies were stunning. Beautiful classical singers with amazing vocal range. Even sang acapella ' Moon River' breathtaking. ' Bring Him Home' Impossible Dream' and a whole lot more. If you see them at your town , get a ticket, worth every penny. So good it brought a tear the eye.

The whole experience of visiting the Empire is a pleasure. A nice cafe, pleasant staff, comfortable seats - all good. Sometimes a bit loud when there is only a small audience.
Please note if you're planning to shop the car parking is now limited to 3h!

Brilliant production of Oliver yesterday. Amazing set, great lighting and atmosphere, and above all the cast were all superb. Definitely recommend this local theatre. The staff, and all involved in this type of production deserve the highest credit for keeping live entertainment going in the area.
