We came to see The Witches of Eastwick which was very good. Cast were all excellent and all our party enjoyed it very much. So why only 3 stars? The theatre was freezing! No exaggeration - it felt like we were sitting in a fridge!!!...More

We went to a show put on by the local drama group, it was a very professional looking production and the group performing seemed to really enjoy themselves. The seating arrangement was good but the cost was high for a non professional show.
