Been here many many times, to watch panto (oh no I haven’t), tribute acts, musicals, comedians, and even the Chuckle Brothers several times.
Been as a family, as a couple, as group of friends.
Staff always friendly.
Everything always seems clean.
They let you take drinks into the auditorium (in plastic glasses) which is good.
Bar prices maybe a little high, as is merchandising (programs etc) but the latter is maybe down to the performer, not the theatre.
Performance prices probably as expected.
At the time of writing, getting out and queuing to pay for parking can take an age, but that will be Wycombe District Council’s fault, not the Swan
Overall, a good place to go for an evening out

Another visit to this lovely and friendly little theatre. Easy to get to and cheap 50p parking in their car park. We saw 20th Century Boy - the life story and songs of the great Marc Bolan and T Rex. Sadly a very underrated performer who left a fabulous legacy of rock songs which never sound dated. A fantastic performance but such a shame to see so many empty seats. A highly recommended musical if you get the chance to see. We will return to this lively theatre again soon.

Attended the Wycombe Swan last night for the Soul Legends show. Our seats were front row (AA), right in the centre so we had an excellent, close-up view of the stage, but the sound at the front wasn't as good as it was a few rows back (due to angle of speakers I would imagine?).
The performers were OK, but nothing special. The band were accomplished session musicians (I have spotted them backing other shows in the past), and the performers had everyone up on their feet for the last few numbers, but we have heard & seen better shows both at Wycombe and elsewhere.
P.S. Cheap parking (only £1!) on a Sunday evening in the Theatre car park adjoining!

This poor theatre is a bit shabby. Glad we didn't eat there as the food was served in the foyer a bit like a corridor. The production of Mindgame we saw was good and the staff were nice. I would suggest dropping prices to get more people in.
