Went to see Menapause the musical. Brilliantly funny - jaw ached from laughing. Bit of a problem with a speaker quickly resolved and did not spoil the evening. Friendly staff but long loo queues! (99% women!)

Poor parking arrangements. We were forced to park on the road due to limited spaces. Food and drinks on offer was a very limited and poor choice.

Tim Vine is the master of one-liners and a modern day Tommy Cooper. Very music-hall, Boarderville. His show is certainly quick-fire and audience inclusive, as he picks on lots of people in the audience and demands lots of audience participation. He's worth seeing once, but...More
