I am a pensioner and I decided to take My grandchildren aged 4 and 5 to this show during half term. They both enjoyed the show but with online booking fees, no reduction for children’s tickets, high prices for drinks, ice-creams, popcorn, programme and “flashing toys” a very expensive hour and a half - over £80.

Thank you for your feedback. To correct a point you made there was a discount for under 16's and also a family ticket discount available offering savings. Booking fees are now standard in most venues and apply online and in person and it is this booking fee that help to ensure regional theatres survive and are able to continue to deliver shows such as this one. The prices we advertised for this performance were all inclusive of booking fees meaning there was nothing to pay above and beyond the stated price. Our drinks and other food and drink items are very comparable with other similar venues and in most cases cheaper than other theatres. The merchandise on sale was being sold by the visiting company who set their own prices. Any food , drink and merchandise etc... is obviously something you can choose to take or leave and it is a service we provide for those who wish to use it.

We attended The Wyvern last night as part of a dance class night out,one of which was our wonderful dance teacher,she is over coming health issues and was due a well deserved treat. The staff at the Wyvern not only on booking but also at the event were absolutely fantastic in meeting our needs going well beyond the call.We all enjoyed the event and commented that we should do this again.Well done to all concerned by the way Aljaz and Janette were amazing to.

I have visited the wyvern many times for different comedy shows. The venue is a great size and no matter where you set you get a clear, good view of the stage! Drink prices are very reasonable! The wyvern is my first choice venue for comedy and they often have some big names on!

Came from Bristol to watch the ballet. A small theatre run by an extremely friendly bunch of staff. We ate in the little restaurant before the performance and the food was very nice, good value for money. All round positive experience.
