Given seat L6. Unfortunately this was behind a pillar and only gave me a view of half the stage. No information given when booking made, disappointing.

Wonderful theatre with great staff, fun night out. They run plays from September till June each year, plus a film a month. Great little cafe, plus cosy bar, highly recommended it.

This is a lovely little theatre on the edge of Sutton Coldfield (near Chester Road station). Great acting, intimate venue. Recommended.

There are a good selection of plays and shows throughout the year. A small volunteer run theatre with professional standards. Parking is a bit short close by, but Chester Road station is 150 yards away.
