Due to (I quote) new safety regs, I'm not allowed to take my handbag into the auditorium as it doesn't fit within their little blue box. Given that I can take my bag onto the plane with me with no problems I'm not sure what...More

I used to go to this theatre regularly when I lived in Cambridge, not so much over recent years. The saddest thing about it is that despite several refurbishments there is STILL no meaningfully effective air conditioning. Sitting in the circle watching 'Fracked' spoiled the...More
