Small town theatre which seems specialise in amateur dramatics and pantomines. Saw a tribute act, which was good, the small theatre atmosphere helps in this case. Could be more adventurous in content ton appeal to a younger clientele.

Had a great evening with the Rolling Stones tribute band. Good fun. Only a small theatre but local and very reasonable for tickets. Not quite as good as going to London but a lot easier and much cheaper. Recommended.

We love this place as its on our doorstep, varied selection (although to many tribute acts for my liking)....good film selection, lovely staff....bar selection is only thing that lets it down. Could do with a decent beer or two

Lovely theatre. Lots of different shows. Staff friendly and great. Auditorium isn’t huge, but you get a decent view from anywhere and the sound is good. We’ve seen some fabulous stuff over recent years including....Paul Daniels, Johnnie Walker, Brian Sewell and Gervase Phinn. Today was...More

Our first visit to the Elgiva was very rewarding. There is parking nearby, the bar area is pleasant with reasonable prices. Our only minor issue is the seating which is not as comfortable as some other theatres. There is a good range of events so...More
