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.
