  • Still a great place to see weird and wonderful shows to suit all ages and tastes. Seating and viewing are superb from almost every angle and level, way too small a percentage and not even worth mentioning negatively otherwise. Plenty of helpful staff on hand to guide you through to your seating area, and likewise on your exit. Sound and lighting are pitched just right as is the overall theatre temperature.
  • Went to see lost in music on Saturday and it was amazing. The place was full and the atmosphere was unreal. The music was fab and the singers where out of this world. Its am amazing venue then only slight down fall is the queue for the bar
