I am a frequent visitor to MiltonKeynes theatre, seeing a great variety of shows from Ballet and Shakespeare to musicals and modern plays. I also grateful that I live within a few minutes drive of this assets and I am able to see shows either on their way out from London or on their pre-London visits. At a reasonable price... More

Easy parking, lots of spaces, (all parking in Milton Keynes is free after 6pm). A bright modern Theatre with helpful staff. Lift to all floors, A Cafe and Lounge Bar, a pianist was playing when I last went. Shows have usually just come from the West End but the ticket prices are very reasonable.

Very good theatre. Foyer sales overloaded on a busy evening. Show was great..... And that's what it's all about.

This was not my first visit and I doubt it will be my last, but I really do need to learn from the experience. Despite having a cavernous interior there are very few seats near the downstairs bar. God help you if you want something as complicated as two black coffees, "there will be a wait a wait as we... More

This particular production is an altogether different view of ballet presentation and setting - congrats to Mr Bourne. The leg room is great - unlike many old London theatres. It is also quick to access and easy to exit, even for wheel chairs. There does appear to be a problem with management in ensuring all the retail outlets are properly... More

Wonderful ballet. The concept,costumes,staging,choreography,music and dancing were all superb. As a ballet fan I was so pleased to see this lovely big theatre full.As usual the bar and facilities let this great theatre down. We long ago stopped buying alcohol because of the ridiculous prices but we tried to get 2 cups of coffee. As usual the upper circle bar... More

A great performance at this lovely venue. Seats are excellent and facilities are good. Yes drinks and snacks are very expensive but I find this is the case at all theatres. Staff are always friendly and helpful.

I have visited here many times and its a lovely theatre with excellent views from a majority of areas. However, the Piano bar is a terrible disappointment. Intended to be more upmarket, instead it is overpriced and mind numbingly slow. £14.30 for a single JD and coke and a glass of wine? I wouldnt mind if there was a good... More

A very comfortable evenings entertainment. It was a quiet busy occasion but easy to get in and no problems getting seated. Clear view, plenty of space all good.....But boy oh boy a round of drinks for four was horrendously expensive, so wont be drinking anything here again which is a shame and does spoil the occasion

This threatre has become a firm favourite but top tip is to take own bottled water as at £2.50 for a small 0.25l is a rip off. Here to see Thoroughly Modern Millie, which turns out to be a great stage version of the classic film staring Julie Andrews. Joanne Clifton took on the role of Millie and following her... More
