Managed to make a three seat late booking for "That'll Be The Day!" on Saturday March 11th ( helped by David Jack, Theatre Manager, whose house we were renting!) and were astounded by the performance. Non-stop singing, dancing, music and comedy for hours (plus useful interval). Spacious foyer, efficient lifts, restaurant and bars all contributed to a wonderful evening with... More

First time visit in the walker theatre, went to see Thin Lizzy tribute band and let me say after a not so good first set, the second set was 10/10. Good sound, electric atmosphere, we will certainly visit again.

Went to see the incredible Bowie Experience show. Brilliant performance. Theatre Severn is a nice enough venue but not very big and therefore does not perhaps attract the big names. However the staff are amazing and extremely helpful. A special word for Colin Parry, one of the attendants in the circle level. He was very friendly and went out his... More

Been here a number of times to see various top quality comedians. Facilities are really good, plenty of parking next to venue, a good bar which is not over expensive. The seating is comfortable and staff are very helpful. One of the best live act venues I've been to.

We have been to this venue quite a few times for music - usually the Walker theatre but sometimes in the larger auditorium. We always enjoy it. The sound quality is good, the staff are unfailingly helpful and friendly and there is a decent well stocked bar. Looking forward to our next visit.
