Reviewed 19 February 2017 via mobile

Went to see Omid Djalili who was quite good. Sadly half the audience were there to thank him for his efforts in saving a local football club rather than to enjoy his comedy and kept interrupting him (one drunk in particular who should have been asked to leave after the second time). Said drunk also chatted all the way through the show, despite a fellow audience member standing up and going over and asking them to be quiet. This was also despite one of the volunteer ushers being within earshot and doing nothing (as usual) The ushers are lovely old ladies and as they're volunteers you can't really expect them to tell a drunk man to be quiet but you can expect them to tell a manager and the manager remove them. (Though previous experience would suggest they scarper as soon as they can). It really ruined the evening.

Prices are high and the only decent seats are the balcony ones.

My class at the Steiner Academy Hereford had been studying The Woman in Black, so the English teacher booked them a trip. I wasn't interested (have gone off horror films) but there was a spare ticket so decided to go today.

Wonderful! It's a 2-man show effectively, and carries it off so well (the book thank goodness, not the film). The class and all the adults who went along were bowled over. Lots of "that's the best play I've ever seen!!" afterwards, admittedly from teenagers, but they REALLY enjoyed it.

The Courtyard itself is a haven of culture in a remotely rural spot. There's often something good on, and the festivals which run there regularly are excellent.

Another great panto in Hereford, we are so lucky to have such a fab theatre in our city - always loads going on there. Only downside was that it was so hot in the theatre on Sat 7th Jan - turn the heating down or put the air con on, it was very uncomfortable - sorry

Got tickets to Rocky Horror sing a long, not long after they reduced the tickets by nearly half. Several people made a complaint and the response was flippant and dismissive. Came
To the event and the film broke down many times (sometimes pausing, words missing and then two total breakdowns) totally spoiling the atmosphere of the film. Currently sat in the near dark when I should be on my way home waiting for them to fix it, poor lack of communication. Time to ask for a refund.
