Been to thus theatre on several occasions now. Try to avoid seats 8 rows from the back and upwards as you really won't see much from there. Use the loo before the show or you'll wait forever afterwards and if your parking buy your ticket...More

I would say all seats have a good view of the stage so I wouldn't worry

I have seen seats in the upper level boxes at the Derngate Theatre - restricted view: partial and also restricted view: bar stools. Do you have any experience of seating in those. If so, please let me know what the view was like in either of those seat types. Also if it being restricted spoiled your enjoyment of the show in any way. Thanks. :-)

Hi unfortunately I don't - my mum is disabled so we never sit near restricted seating. Regards

Hi Everyone!! Am considering booking tickets for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang but have never been to this Theatre before. I wondered if anyone would be good enough to tell me if the Stalls are tiered because if they are all 'on the level' I thought our view would be restricted. Also, is there anywhere to eat nearby before the Show - nothing expensive but reasonably priced. MANY thanks in advance for any replies.

stalls are tiered so you should have a good view. The Theatre is walking distance from the town centre - think Prezzo, Ask ,etc, but just book in advance
