  • We are so lucky to have our beautiful theatre. I have enjoyed many a night out here. Great array of shows all year round. Lovely cafe here too serving delicious food. Excellent art exhibitions here regularly.
  • Theatre itself is great. Booking online is inadvisable if it can be avoided. Extra charges include a 'donation' which is still taken from your card after (you think) you've removed this supplementary extortion during the booking process.
