Watched Priscilla Queen of the Desert with amazing cast. All worked very well and the show just doesn’t stop leading into one scene from the last seamlessly. Just brilliant.

We love this theatre and our son is finally old enough to attend shows. The staff are so friendly and it's a beautiful building.

Went to a Take That tribute night. Easy access, run of the mill bar prices offset by reasonable ticket prices. Great seats with an excellent view and a really good atmosphere.
