Enjoyed a visit to this fantastic Watermill Theatre in a beautiful setting to see Tell Me on a Sunday performed excellently by Julie Prenger. We enjoyed a superb lunch and will certainly return.

Went to see 'A Little Night Music' on Saturday. In an interesting and beautiful old watermill the venue is always special and the performance and production were outstanding. A multi-instrumental and talented cast gave us a night to remember. Bravo!
