We visit this theatre quite often as we live locally and it is always a great night. It has a very intimate atmosphere and you feel close to the performers. The bar on the first floor can be crowded and there is often not enough space to sit down but the rest of the venue is lovely. You can park close by in the shopping centre car parks (£1) and walkthrough via the pedestrian walk ways. In the interval you can get a drink at the bar or have an ice cream from the guys and girls serving it close to your seat. The sound and lighting were great and we all had a good old sing along and there was dancing in the gangways. Elio and his band were once again absolutely wonderful. If you like Billy Joel’s music make sure you find a venue to see these guys soon. But either way if you are close to Basingstoke make sure you find a show to see at the Haymarket.

This is a really lovely small theatre that provides for a great view wherever you sit. We were here for a concert and sat in the second back row of the stalls and it still felt very intimate. Sound quality was excellent. The only issue really was with the bar where service is really slow. There was nowhere near enough staff on for a sold out performance and service was just a bit too genteel - you need the "bums on seats" mentality to get the orders through the tills as quickly as possible.

The Haymarket is a lovely theatre. At just under 400 seats it feels intimate but gets a great atmosphere on music gigs. Great mix of plays, music, comedy, kids shows and local am dram and dance shows. A local venue that has something for everyone.

The Haymarket is a small theatre which means wherever your seat you get a great view of the performance.
Great venue to watch a play and many well known actors have appeared on the Haymarket Stage.
There is a restaurant which makes a great night out.
Good variety of plays and acts are performed at The Haymarket.
