Went to see Our House at Winter Gardens, it was great. The music and dancing was brilliant all the way through. Would definitely come back here to watch another show, all the seating looked to be in good view of the stage.

Took our daughter and friend to watch Caberet at The winter gardens, and it's such a lovely place, full of nostalgia and history. The theatre itself is fabulous, and we had great seats. The theatre attracts brilliant shows. Well worth visiting

I cannot express too highly how much I enjoyed this show. Will was exceptional, he stole the show and his talent was patently obvious. After my disappointment when he left Strictly early I didn't expect such dedication to his craft. But he has excelled himself...More
