We have been to several shows here recently and they have all been good or great. In particular we liked Giselle the ballet. Some locally produced show's have been of a high standard and we will be back

This is a great old-fashioned theatre that needs to be made better use of. The publicity for events is very poor and the box office is no longer open on Saturdays, making it hard to book except on-line. Inside the theatre, it is not easy...More
