Saw Office and a Gentleman at the regent. The show and its cast were incredible. Despite being at the back of the circle we had an amazing view of the whole stage. Seats were comfortable and staff at the theatre were brilliant.

Yes you can, the prices for ice creams and dinks were quite good for a theatre, we had small tub of ice cream cost £2.50 and a pint of beer was £4. I hope you enjoy your visit as much as we did.
