What a great Pantomime. The humour was good and the singing and dancing very good indeed. A good team effort by the whole cast.

Lovely theatre. Great view of the stage wherever you are sitting. Foyer, cafe and bar nicely laid out and the staff are friendly and helpful. Prices for programs, popcorn etc extremly reasonable. All together a very pleasant place to visit.

We had an amazing experience. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the theatre was very clean. The production was fantastic, good sound and effects. I laughed as did my children 11 and 4. Lots of action, songs, jokes. Totally recommend
