Visited to see the play Matilda. To be honest not my choice. Lovely little Theatre, seats just over 1200 on three levels. Very much like the Duchess Theatre near by. Seated in the circle we had a good view of the stage. The show was a small cast but very talented children in the show backed by some fabulous actors... More

This is a review equally for the theatre as it is for Dick Whittington, the show was fantastic, brilliantly acted, funny, great music. Stand ours were Dick, the Rat and the Dame.

Went to the matinee and saw a brilliantly funny show very well acted. Robert Powell stole the show with excellent delivery of his lines and wonderful expressions that said a thousand words. The only thing that spoilt it a little was the small, uncomfortable seats with nowhere near enough leg room.

We enjoyed our visit to the theatre for Thursday afternoon matinee of 'Stepping Out'. We sat in the circle (3rd row back) which had plenty of leg room and a reasonable view. The seat row letters could do with being a bit clearer in low lighting. Staff were generally helpful.

Saw Hobson's choice on this occasion. Sat in the stalls which always affords a good view. The venue has been revamped in the last few years and the bar area above is very pleasant. The theatre itself is functional and comfortable and always hosts very good to excellent plays. I have always had good visits here.
