  • The seating is good and the view clear - I enjoy goiong to our local theatre as it is very convenient to reach either from the station or centre of the town 
  • Excellent venue for a better intimate performance that you don't get from larger venues. Holds around 400 people, so some popular shows sell out fast. Panto here is one of the best, as you aren't paying extra for a third rate celeb to appear. The story is what is most important.
  • Decent local theatre on the suburban show circuit, though we did see a fairly big name comedienne here. Good value parking next door for evening events.
  • Good shows far price
  • Lovely venue with a good variety of acts performing there
  • Good venue
