Another great night at the Hawth Theatre. Nice and intimate not too many seats so like a private showing. Comfy seats. Good view of stage. Easy to get a drink during performance (you can also pre-book drinks for the break)

Thanks for your review Mark, appreciate it. We've been lucky attracting the likes of Ross, Russell Brand, John Bishop, Miranda Hart and Jason Manford to perform their work-in-progress shows here offering a chance to see such big names in an intimate setting. More

The shows are fantastic but this is all marred by the pre drinks taking over 30 minutes to get served. Pre ordering helps but not a guarantee. Not cheap either.

I took my 2 yr old grandson to see the Northern Ballet Company perform Goldilocks and Three Bears. It was truly delightful. My grandson, as young as he is, really enjoyed it and he understood the story throughout. His face and attention span said it all. He was very comfortable sitting on a booster seat. But one needs to collect... More

We like humour & comedy however it comes. The Hawth supplies both in a good atmosphere, & seating is comfortable in both 'theatres'. We don't live too close so we possibly tend to be a bit early arriving. Parking is ok but the road layout doesn't seem to be so suited to getting out & away so well. Don't feel... More

This is a relatively small theatre, but hosts some great shows/performances across the year. All the seats are comfortable, and have a great view with no obstruction. Easy to access and ample parking. Also has a bar!

Attended the Hawth to watch my daughter in the school dancer show. It was very good. The staff are friendly. It has a bar and sells food as well. The only Issue have is the seats aren't very comfortable but all seats in the lower tier have great views of the stage

The Hawth offers a wide range of top quality shows to entertain everyone. Easy to reach, with a large free car park it is an excellent venue to see a show/comedy/music gig without the hassle of travelling into London. There is a bar and small cafe at the theatre, on the expensive side but convenient if you want to have... More
