Asked if I could have a refund due to poor weather conditions. Told the performance was going ahead so no. So risk your life in snow or loose your money. Terrible attitude

I came here to watch the pantomime with family. Large theatre with comfortable seating for 1,400. Such a shame it is going to close down when the council has built its new offices.

Went to see a choral and orchestral concert. All facilities were good and the sound was excellent. Comfy seats with a good view.
