We enjoyed a matinee performance of Shirley Valentine and it was superb. The theatre is very clean and has a wonderful atmosphere. There are areas to enjoy a drink, snack or meal and look out over the river.

Try and go here every year for the pantomime at Christmas - it's always good fun even if a little amateur. Good location near town and restaurants :)
