A gripping production. Superbly acted in one of our loveliest theatres.
Dinner at Cote prior to our trip. As they are aware of your going to the theatre you are looked after very well.

Last week we went to see Birdsong at the Theatre Royal Windsor. It really was an excellent experience. The staging and set was very cleverly handled to cover the two main settings of the story, namely the trenches of WW1 and a pre-war setting in rural France. The acting was terrific and the whole production was passionate and moving.

We've been to this theatre many times and it is a beautiful place. We sat in the front stalls (as usual) and felt completely immersed in the action which was just a few metres in front of us. Hard not to have a tear in the eye at the end or to reflect on the futility of war and all those lives lost 100 years ago. Well done to everyone involved, especially the cast.

Great acting, not just from the leads. It was moving and thought provoking, with a solid sense of realism and suffering alongside the story line. The book, I am told, is excellent too.

The Theatre Royal Windsor has so much character, the production Birdsong was real quality. It was an amazing, very emotional experience. The acting was terrific. The set was fabulous, a really enjoyable evening. Very good value! Super ice cream too!
We parked for free along by the river.

A total joy to be able to attend a show hosted by my boyhood cricketing hero.The theatre was delightful as always and I am glad to say an appreciative and sober audience after reading some recent reviews.David Gower himself was a delight , personable,urbane and wittily entertaining, just as instantly likeable on stage as he was at the crease 30 years ago.The Theatre Royal has become a venue that I value as a reliably enjoyable theatre to visit.
