This is a great theatre that provides entertainment throughout the year to suit all ages & tastes. It never fails to disappoint & offers a relaxing environment with a bar for those all important pre * post theatre drinks. There are often lives shows in the bar area which makes the experience more informal, intimate & relaxing. The main theatre... More

I recently attended a performance in the alley theatre which was really enjoyable As a venue I find the alley to be comfortable and clean but my one gripe is that during a performance you are not permitted to eat or drink. Drinks are available from the in house bar during the intermission however it takes quite a while to... More

Being a fan of culture and arts the alley is a great venue to watch the acts. Staff very helpful and lovely a tidy place. There's so a lovely cafe on site too for a coffee or a alcohol drink before a show.

Ate here recently mid morning there were only a few people in we ordered tea/coffee and scones it took for ever. They appeared to be short staffed with only one person taking orders and doing everything else. The food and beverages were good but management need to pay attention and employ adequate staff or people will vote with their feet... More

The Alley is like a gem in Strabane! They have a variety of shows and events for everyone. The actual theater is not huge but it is a nice time out. The staff is so friendly and helpful. I can't imagine Strabane without the Alley. They even have a small restaurant and bar that is really nice.

I have personally performed twice now in this venue and have to say it is my absolute favourite venue to perform in. So professional and puts performers at ease as we have no concerns when it comes to this venue. Cannot wait to return in December.
