I have been here a few times and always with my young girls. This time was for the Christmas show (out third!). The facilities are fantastic, modern and clean. The parking nearby is reasonably priced and there is a pub across the road to get refreshments. The only downside to the theatre is that the snacks and drinks are a... More

Love the theatre my only gripe is they don't serve non-alcoholic beer or wine and the times I have been there, there never seems to be enough staff serving. I have to say though that the staff are very pleasant that work there.

Four of us went to this theatre recently. It was the first visit for my husband and I. The staff were very helpful and answered queries with a smile! It is quite a spectacular building. We had great seats, a few rows from the front. We had arranged a drink for the interval but a service to have your drinks... More

We have been to many shows at Aylesbury Waterside theatre and it fits well. The acoustics seem good for all types of show and if there is a problem it is the actors/production and not the theatre. Seats are comfortable and have adequate leg room. Theatre bars are as usual for any theatre and prices fair rather than good. Certainly... More

We've been before and enjoyed the experience greatly and I have to say the waterside has kept its standards and its general presentation very high. Its a really well designed theatre ...not really bad seats at all, good views almost everywhere, the 2nd tier would not be to my liking ..but I am sure itss good up there too. Comfy... More

We have visited this theatre many times now as it is one of several that are not too distant from where we live. Apart from the location this theatre is most definitely our favourite for the following reasons. Parking is directly opposite the theatre, Also along side the car park is a very reasonable priced pub restaurant for that pre... More

After gently feeding my 12 year old son a diet of Buddy Holly music in the car over the last couple of months when taking him to his Tae Kwon Do classes, today we went to see the musical. He didn't know we were going to the see the musical until we were in the theatre, but once the show... More

I wish there were more venues as good as this around the country. Well placed in the town, adequate car parking, on bus routes etc., and a good place for concerts and theatre. Modern interior with decent acoustics. You lucky Aylesburians!

We went to see Buddy & were very impressed with this theatre.There seemed to be plenty of car parking around. We used the Walton Street carpark, which was a few minutes walk away. We had coffee & cake in the theatre cafe when we arrived. Both were tasty & the coffee hot. After we had finished our coffee & cake... More
