The production values for Aladdin, the panto, were very high indeed. This was sheer joy, towards the end of the run when the cast and crew must have been exhausted. Panto needs to work for adults and children and this was perfect - a slow audience but the cast built the energy levels in the room and by the second... More

It is scary to think that I first visited the Yvonne Arnaud way back in November 1971 on a school trip! I don't go to the theatre often nowadays, but have not missed the pantomime for about the 15 x years. Excellent production as always! Look forward to the 2017-2018 production!

Twenty of us booked together with some eating before and some after. We have used this theatre before and as usual it was very good. Parking is conveniently nearby but fills up quickly but it takes ages to get out again as everyone departs at once. Tip - park elsewhere in Guildford and walk a few hundred metres.

Back to the Yvonne Arnaud for pantomime after having a break for a couple of years. To be honest I was nervous about going as I felt that it had become a bit stale and repetitious. Luckily the break seems to have worked a trick – not sure if it’s me or the YA – but felt this year’s production... More

The Yvonne Arnaud Cafe has a heaven-sent location by the river. It should be a favourite gathering place for tea and coffee, buzzing with life. We met friends there recently hoping for an en enjoyable morning coffee. Sadly it is squandered by slow and sour staff - not for the first time. I'm sure someone interested in hospitality could create... More

A great theatre apart from the lack of legroom which has been mentioned by frequent reviewers. An aisle seat solves the problem. We have often eaten in the restaurant before a performance but recently the standard seems to have gone down. Our meal last week was disappointing with an excellent piece of pork let down by poor vegetables and unimaginative... More

This was my second time visit this Theatre. Fantastic location within the town centre and much more of a genuine old fashioned 'theatre' experience than other venues nearby. The show itself was fantastic and the set was really in keeping with the period in which the story is set. My only quibble about the venue is the lack of legroom,... More

My wife and I were regular visitors to the theatre but have not been for a while but I managed to get tickets for the Tuesday performance of Relatively Speaking which was very good. The seats were good, and luckily I had got an aisle seat as the seats were a little cramped (or perhaps I've grown!). However, a little... More

On entering the theatre reception and on to the bar and servery I was greeted warmly and asked if I would like my usual. She remembered me from a previous visit. A large cup and pot of tea made in a proper tea pot was taken to my favourite table in the garden which was surrounded by shrubbery and had... More

The theatre is amazing and thriving... well worth looking online or in the Press to see what's on. The prices are modest by comparison to the West End, For Touring companies from all over UK this is a venue that they try and fit into their schedule. Worth a visit...
