Excellent experience for my 5 years old son. He really enjoyed the play and the whole theatre experience. He was really excited and happy throughout. It is great to have The Dukes on the door step.

Quirky Theatre, what a lovely place to take the family. The show was fantastic, my husband commented on how good the actors where. Again great prices only £15.00 each for Saturday evening show.

Superb afternoon at the Dukes to watch their Xmas production Aladdin. It was witty, entertaining and thoughtfully put together. Highly recommended. Staff are super helpful and it’s a genuinely welcoming place.

We went to see Waiting for Godot at The Dukes. Stunningly good, as are all the plays we've seen there. If you want to catch Waiting for Godot, it transfers to the Stephen Joseph Theatre.

Both to watch a play or view a chosen movie this is a gem of a place with so much more going on. It's a credit to Lancaster to have the Dukes - well done to all involved.
