Cramphorn Theatre
Reviewed 28 June 2018 via mobile

A nice enough theatre, but the visit was somewhat spoiled by the rude lady who was staffing the door who was very abrasive for no reason. It was like she didn’t want people in the Theatre.

Typical 1960s style building from the outside but actually quite a reasonable, medium sized theatre. A bit lacking in atmosphere but the seats are comfortable enough.

My mother and I are keen theatre goers and always enjoy our visits to the Cramphorn. We like to go during the afternoon rather than evening and have never been disappointed with anything we have seen.
The Cramphorn is the smaller of the two Chelmsford theatres but is the more modern and comfortable of the two.
The theatre is easily accessible by road and public transport. It is located near to a car par, bus terminal and railway station.
There is a small interval bar selling a range of goodies to enjoy.
The theatre provides easy access for disabled people.
Out most recent visit was to see The Wedding Singer presented by the Springers, a local group whose work is always of the highest standard. The production was really professional and packed with fun. A great way to forget about everyday life and be carried away into a 'new world' for a couple of hours.
The tickets are always reasonably priced.

Went to see a live, filmed performance of the play, Billy Elliot. It's quite a small venue, next to the Chancellor Theatre. Evening car parking on a Sunday is £1.00, immediately adjacent to the theatre.

The picture on the screen was excellent; as was the sound, ie sounded like Dolby stereo. The only criticism is that the seats are not very comfy, although there's plenty of leg room.

The venue is also used for stage productions, especially amateur ones. There's a small catering facility selling drinks and other refreshments. If it's a show you really want to see, it's a lot cheaper than going to the West End or Southend, etc!
