Thought we had great seats in the front row of the upper circle, but my two children couldn't see a thing over the wall. Most disappointingly, you had to walk down two flights of stairs to the box office to find a booster seat which...More

This is a decent provincial theatre with comfortable seating and good views. The only thing that stops it getting five stars is the massive crush for an overpriced drink in the interval. But I guess most theatres are like that

Attended the Wycombe Swan last night for the Soul Legends show. Our seats were front row (AA), right in the centre so we had an excellent, close-up view of the stage, but the sound at the front wasn't as good as it was a few...More

This poor theatre is a bit shabby. Glad we didn't eat there as the food was served in the foyer a bit like a corridor. The production of Mindgame we saw was good and the staff were nice. I would suggest dropping prices to get...More

I was disappointed with this production. It started off with 2 characters just talking to set the scene, these did the same later to move the play along, but it didn't flow. Their stilted conversations may just as well have been a narrator reading. I...More

Some restricted viewing from the very back, highest level but only on the extreme sides - you will find the stair hand rail is the only concern but as they're small square metal tubing it''s not as bad as it could be
