Been here for a few things, from comedy evenings with my wife to pantomime at Christmas with the family and it never fails to deliver. Great venue, good views from all seats and ample parking nearby.

If coming into town at night look for the lit up blue /greenish neon sign on the Brindley roof . The theatre also is along the side of the Bridgewater canal
