Came and saw urinetown. Lovely little intimate theatre. Really feel like you are in the show! Bar was well stocked with snacks, drinks and ice cream. Definitely would see shows here again!! Urinetown itself was brilliant with a very talent cast!

Small theatre, love the ambiance and slight quirky nature.. Saw the play Ushers here recently. What a treat. An ameteur company but very well done. It's great to see something different!

This is a fantastic theatre to watch independent and quirky performances. There's nothing like the SJM as they have the ability to produce good entertainment over and over again. A warm and welcoming theatre with good local connections. Their Christmas shows are a family favourite.

My wife and I have been attending this theatre for many years now and never miss the wonderful Christmas shows. Saw Oysters last night and we enjoyed every moment. Good cast playing many parts.

What a difference from last year's lack-lustre show. Eastern Angles Christmas show back on form. Excellent acting, singing, jokes etc. Can't say I always followed the plot but that's all part of the fun. Absurdity heaped on absurdity - brilliant. All the fun at the...More

This small theatre has a lovely cosy intimate feel, you are right up there with the actors rather than the action being on some distant stage that you need binoculars to see properly. The Eastern Angles put on a great show - we saw "The...More
