I usually visit at least once a month to see a fantastic show... So muvh brilliant variety and can always see really well. Seats very comfy unless sitting right around side as then slightly tilted. Very friendly staff and a lovely place to go.

I love this place. Reasonably priced with a great selection of plays and shows. Of course the Panto is the highlight. Parking is in the next door multi story over the shopping centre. There is a cafe and sweet shop on sight Bar also open

We saw Crazy for you with Tom Chambers as the lead. Fantastic performance by the whole cast. If you have not seen this show try to find where it is next and book the seats! Nice theatre
