Took 50 youngsters and everyone had a fabulous time. The show was well put together and the children ranging from 5 to 16 all enjoyed it very much. Well done everyone on an excellent afternoon.

I took my class of Year 6 children to see the show and it was very engaging (if somewhat inappropriate from costumes/dancing). A great establishment woven into the fabric of Great Yarmouth. Well worth a visit.

First time to the Hippodrome - most certainly won't be the last. Show was absolutely brilliant, I laughed so hard it hurt. 4 year old who can't sit still was mesmerised throughout, all the family were thoroughly entertained - would highly recommend for any age

I'm not sure I'm sorry. However if you call the box office, who I found very helpful when booking, I'm sure they would advise of any discounts. Sorry I can't offer a definitive answer. Regards Anthony Matthews

You have a perfect view of the auditorium wherever you sit, only word of warning is to be aware of the smell of fuel after the motorbikes carry out their fantastic show. Definitely worth seeing
