Lovely theatre with good acoustics. Very friendly and helpful staff and volunteers. Really good range of top-quality shows. Lots of parking on-site and nearby.

Amazing venue for weddings. They're able to raise the floor above the seats to have the area flat for dancing and tables for dining. We'll specified tech for band and event rigging. Helpful staff with a great theatre bar.
