I went to Dr. Hook and to The Pink Floyd concerts at St. James in May and found both bands to be excellent. It's a shame that I can't compliment the ushers, not all of them by the way. But there were a couple (older...More

We've been here recently for The Proclaimers and The Blue Group. Sat in two different locations - either way it was awesome! Great view of the show - always feel intimate and the staff are great!

The St James is lovely inside. So beautifully old architecture that is well maintained. A nice venue to watch a show. The cafe attached to the theatre has just been renovated and looks great. I recommend going to a show at this theatre
