First time at this particular theatre. Very impressed with the look, atmosphere and its facilities. We had seats in the Circle on the front row and the view was excellent. The show was 'Around the World in Eighty Days. Loved it for start to finish.

This was my first visit to a panto for about ten years. Sleeping Beauty was rubbish, slow and the Princess may as well have been asleep the whole time. Absolute rubbish.
