But one day, a mysterious lady with two left feet turns up on their doorstep and whisks... More

could not believe we paid less than £20 p/p for this show. it was top notch and hilarious. our seats were up in the gods but when i requested other seats due to a fear of heights we were moved straight away. cant wait to come and see peter pan next year.

Enjoyed an evening with family watching the Pantomime, Cinderella. It's full house. Set up was good and ambience was warm. Good time to spend an evening with family.

Another year and yet another FANTASTIC Panto. I say every year it can't get any better than it already is BUT somehow they manage it. Every single actor /actress is fabulous (main characters have done 12 consecutive years at the Theatre Royal so that speaks volumes) the costumes are always lovely and the set it self is too ( you...

Last year we enjoyed the panto at the Theatre so inspired by this we booked a private box for this year. Absolutely amazing experience for all ages and I am sure this will now become an annual family event.
