What brilliant casting and performances! - an absolutely hilarious and uplifting experience. Perfectly suited show for such an intimate Theare. Thank you so much.

Never been before. The bands and music were great. Soft drinks at the bar too highly priced. Did not find the seats the most comfortable for the length of the event. Easy parking near the venue.

My first visit to this theatre (normally go to Woking for Panto). Small theatre felt cosy and was good for small children. Panto was very good. King Rat and Jack were great. Lots of audience participation (not just at the end) which the kids loved,...More

This was obviously in its prime in the 80s/ early 90s, but now it's dated and awful. The shows programmed on the whole are dreadful, with a few exceptions (The Wipers Times, the watermill Shakespeare productions). Something drastic needs to happen to get people back...More

Loved the panto and we used the upstairs bar for our interval drinks and have to say a great experience. Not as busy as downstairs and much more seating. The pantomine is a family favourite and well worth a visit.

Visited the YA theatre, Guildford, to see Laurence Fox in the Real Thing. Play was first class but experience blighted by ghastly food in their Riverside Cafe beforehand. We were pleasantly surprised to find a table very easily at 7pm, an hour before the performance...More

We visit this theatre regularly - the last visit was to see the poignant Wiper Times. The new seats are comfortable and the auditorium has a marvellous ambience. The staff are friendly and helpful. The theatre is a great asset to Guildford's cultural life.
