As a birthday treat for me and a Christmas treat for my mum and 2 sisters, my husband booked tickets for us to go see this wonderful show - he knows how much I loved the film! On arrival at the theatre - a very short taxi ride from the station - we had a brief wait until the doors... More

Love this theatre. It's easy to get to and wherever you sit you have a great view of the stage. The performance is Strictly Ballroom was outstandingly brilliant. I worried that one of my favourite films wouldn't translate to the stage. How wrong I was !! It was amazing. Don't miss seeing this brilliant show.

We went along to see Strictly ballroom. What a terrific show. A long one though. I am afraid I do not agree with what has been said about tickets. You get what you pay for and we got higher priced tickets and were in row D. I thought it was much better than if we had been further back. This... More

The Quarry Theatre was fantastic, I dont think there was a bad seat in the place, very comfortable and lots of leg room. The staff were great ,very polite and the service just brilliant. I visited to see the Matinee show of Strictly Ballroom on Saturday 7th Jan, the place was packed. The show was fantastic, and on the whole... More

Firstly , dont pay the higher price tickets as you can see wherever you sit in this lovely theatre! All seats are very similar view because of the layout of the place ! Food was lovely in the restaurant before the show. Only downside was the tables. A bit cafe style . The. Show itself was top notch. You will... More

We went to see Strictly Ballroom (BRILLIANT) as a post- Christmas treat. I wondered how such a big production would translate to a small stage.......it was great. The atmosphere was wonderful and the theatre itself spacious and comfortable. The only problem was the heat, one minute boiling hot so I presume the automatic air conditioning kicks in ...... seconds later... More

We chose to eat before the show at the restaurant. By day it's a self-service cafe and it does lack atmosphere and feels a little canteenish. Things didn't get off to a good start as despite email confirmations they had lost our booking for 7 people. However they did quickly make amends and got us a table - right by... More

Travelled for hours on a f-d up rail network to see play of one of my fave films. So good I'm doing it again in the new year. Absolute perfection!! I laughed, I cried. This production MUST go national!!

Brilliant food. The salad bar is lovely. I really enjoyed the soup of the day. And lovely proper coffee! Only issue is that the decor needs updating, chairs are tired and the tables a bit sticky.
