Went to see Dads Army show. It was brilliant, two blokes playing 25 roles, absolutely unbelievable, it was spell bounding. Again the staff at the playhouse, were brilliant from the ticket office, bar, and ushers. Thank you for a wonderful night out.

Pleasant theatre surroundings, friendly staff, and well maintained. Went to see A Feast of Fiddles on stage and it was great. Big enough for a good size audience to add character, small enough that there's some connection with the performers. Good bar facilities.
