Went to see pantomime (Peter Pan) at the Forum in Barrow with 4yr old grandchild. An excellent production and thoroughly enjoyed by children and adults alike. Well done to Barrow. The theatre was well presented with good staff. Would recommend a visit.

Great little theatre for local and visiting events, smaller rooms available for smaller events. Bar and cafe gives good service and value, recently biased because my grandson was performing in the pantomime, brilliant!

Excellent venue putting on some good shows with top acts. It boasts a bar and a cafe. Prices are a little higher than normal high st cafes and pubs but still well worth it

Sound , lighting , ambient temperature were all ok and the various access points are convenient. The seats are quite hard and not large - but comfortable enough for a couple of hours. I found the leg room rather minimal which resulted... More
