“Nice pier”
Review of Britannia Pier

Britannia Pier
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

A few arcades, a few stalls (camel racing, darts, rifles) and some rides (dodgems, large slide) everything to keep you busy for a couple of hours.

There is also a bar and stalls to get ice cream and sweets.

Halfway down is the theatre which we didn’t visit but looked like it had a good selection of shows for the upcoming year.

A reasonably nice pier however it doesn’t really stretch out into the sea much.

We went here on Saturday evening to see Jasper Carrot, which was an excellent show, but the theatre itself was freezing!!! The seats felt damp when we sat down and we have never seen so many people in a theatre with coats on. Even the people on the stage were complaining about the temperature. Have emailed the theatre to ask about the heating, but after 3 days have yet to hear anything.
Will not be going back here in a hurry.

Went to see Jasper Carrott and Bev Bevan who we have to say were fantastic, but the total lack of heating in the theatre was just terrible, it has to be bad when the rock group had to wear coats. We have never had to enjoy a theatre experience and need to wear a coat. Britania theatre seems they take your money and do nothing for the comfort of the visitor. No explanation or apology from the management.. Perhaps they were in the office with the heating on.
Again well done Jasper Carrott and Bev Bevan, Would we see them again....YES. But not at the cold Britania theatre.

Absolutely fantastic show from the Brummie Comedian with full nostalgia based pop support from some of the grandees of the good old days plus some new very talented singers which deserved a warmer Theatre to perform in. Everybody including the performers were saying they were very cold ??? the seats almost felt damp such was the temperature. Not good enough for one of the few Theatres still operating as such in the Town.

What a S##t hole. It was filthy,rotten,dirty. The tables were so dirty and sticky you couldn't put anything on them. Given it was the end of the season it was very tired. There were only 6 people in and us. Drunk people swearing and you could smell the toilets. I had one mouthful of my beer which was disgusting and we left. We have been here before and it was a sham to see how bad it was.
