Not really sure what the previous reviewer was moaning about.. you can clearly see the seating plan online and the box office team are really helpful and honest if you are unsure. With comedians like Russell Kane- you need to book early otherwise with any...More

We visited the NTR Portsmouth to see ELO Again, what a great evening. The band were tremendous and the Theatre was really nice. After seeing news items about the restoration we really wanted to see it for ourselves, and were definitely not disappointed, the Theatre...More

In many respects, this restored Frank Matcham designed theatre is the star of every show here and it's very easy to sit in the main auditorium and to be distracted by its spectacular plasterwork, gilding and stained glass. A varied and interesting programme of drama,...More

I'm not sure if this is entirely fair - perhaps the staff are all hard working volunteers - but honestly you'd think they could serve coffee! There is a perfectly decent coffee machine in the bar, but the night we arrived the duty Mgr had...More

We are sorry Lorraine. Your question only came to our attention today. Rather late to respond we know, but unfortunately we did not have a show on in the Theatre that night. Hopefully you will be able to visit us again... More
