First time at the Theatre comedy night and we had a really great time. The theatre is welcoming and with just the right amount of seats to make it an intimate evening, especially with a few tables put between the small platform stage and the tierred seating. Good sound and atmosphere and will definitely be back.

Incredibly uncomfortable cramped seating in the upper circle, avoid any production longer than an hour, or better still avoid the theatre. It is obvious Swansea Coucil have a total disgregard for the comfort of the audience. However Romesh Ranganathan was superb!!!

Swansea Grand Theatre has seen many international acts come and go over the years and continues to please. And it also has bar, dinning room and cafe to make your visit complete.

The Swansea Grand is a great venue. My most recent visit was with my mother and sister to watch Dirty Dancing in September. While in comparison to other venues such as the Millennium Centre in Cardiff the Grand's décor is dated this doesn't detract from the experience. Smaller than a lot of venues the Swansea Grand is an intimate venue... More

Watched a production of Oliver last night. The production was really good the premises however is very outdated. It's need a lick of paint and some serious modernisation. Parking is also an issue as Swansea Council seem determined to keep the main routes inaccessible or closed.

Went to the show and was in the stalls row K. A good view of the stage and could hear and see everything fine. The seats are a bit uncomfortable and slightly small but apart from that it was a great show.

Went to the Saturday matinee of Big Girls Don't Cry (tribute to Frankie Vallie and The Four Seasons) which was fantastic, I'd absolutely see it again. We had a glass of wine in the Footlights cafe bar before the show. There is a large conservatory we sat in which is lovely on a sunny day. The house Pinot was £15... More

We very much enjoyed the Fluellen Theatre's performance of the Scottish Play on Friday evening. Superb acting by everyone and an interesting oblong stage (in the Arts Wing) with seating all around - better than The Globe! Our only disappointment was that the play started about 10 minutes late (because, we think, many of the audience arrived late) and the... More

I live in Swansea and often go to the Grand, generally finding performances excellent. Last night, my husband and I went to see Jimmy Osmond who is currently on tour. He seems a pleasant chap with a nice voice so we were looking forward to hearing his Andy Williams show. When Osmond sang, it was fine, but for two thirds... More
