  • Went to see Fairport Convention and they are still as good as ever. The Theatre is a good size but not too big.  more »
  • Went to watch the Elvis Years last weekend event spoilt by a crowd of drunks male and female shouting and talking loud while rest of us tried to watch concert. Staff just watched them and allowed them...  more »
  • Me and my partner came here to see The Fureys. The main area looks like some sort of community centre or school. It really needs a makeover because there are so many pretty decent shows that come here...  more »

  • I do sort of take this place for granted as it has been on my doorstep for nearly 30 years, and I have previously worked here. It is worth checking out one of their many shows, they offer a wide range of shows for ballet productions to comedians. There are many function rooms for hire for any occasion. The Cresset also has 'Dave The Clowns Funhouse' for the little ones or 'The Fayre Spot' bar for a quick drink. It is located at Bretton Centre which has a good range of shops.
  • Went to see Dirty Dancing. Wasn't the musical as I first thought. Could have been better advertised. Brought a drink that was months out of date and flat!
  • The Cresset is a rather seedy relic of the 1960s. The shopping centre isn't great and the theatre has uncomfortable seats and very little leg room. It's quite an ordeal for a taller person to sit through a show here. Having said that, there aren't many venues in the area and they do put on good performances.
  • Went here to see Jimmy Carr. The carpark had been overtaken by a large group of people living in caravans however the staff were well organised and directed everyone to an overflow carpark. No fuss or hassle.
  • Great night! We went to see Michael Jackson look alike. We bought tickets for the front ( third row back ). But I was very disappointed when the audience from the back decided to come to the front and stand in front of the stage. There was several seats not taken, so they could have bought those.
