If This Is The New Theatre, Id Like to see the Old Theatre .......

But it seems this New Theatre dates back as far as 1836, was replaced in 1886 and so despite a fire and an enlargement in 1908 it's still a beautiful but old Theatre. My wife... read more

But it seems this New Theatre dates back as far as 1836, was replaced in 1886 and so despite a fire and an enlargement in 1908 it's still a beautiful but old Theatre.

Went to see The Commitments at the New Theatre, show was great especially the singing not so sure about the acting! Venue is ok but as many people have mentioned the theatre is starting to look tired and could do with a face lift. We got a good deal as my friend works for TVP. But usually the prices are... More

Went to see a show which was amazing. The venue itself is nice and tradition and just what you'd expect from a theatre. The staff were really helpful, welcoming and friendly. My only gripe was the £5.00 I was charged for 2 small bottles of water and £4.00 for a tiny portion of ice cream.

A comfortable modern theatre that wouldn't be out of place in London's theatre land. Great views of the stage even from the wings at the back.

Despite the name New - this theatre isn't. It has the feel of a London theatre! The seating is standard, but we were allowed to move as there were empty better seats. The temperature was good - so often boiled or frozen! Generally very clean apart from the circle corridor where the Gents are - phew! Really pongy! Impressive amount... More

Visited last week to see Rocky Horror Show . Great show in good location . Refreshments remain expensive .. £2.50 for a bottle of water seems extreme .
