Yes this was an evening of really good theatre- excellent sets, costume, acting and production. Loved this- just a pity the play itself “Votes for Women” was second rate. The New Vic made the best out of it but why choose such a poorly written...More

Losing faith in the Vic. Another awful play to a half empty theatre on a Saturday night. Not the fault of the actors, just a very boring predictable performance.

Friendly, welcoming theatre in a residential area. Great customer service, excellent performances and lovely food in the restaurant. Even a great little gift shop. Nice lunch venue too.

We saw a take on the Laurel and Hardy story here and it didn't disappoint. The Venue is enlightening and personal and you feel part of what is going on with its amphitheatre type arrangement. A very enjoyable evening.
