but could do with updating. Not enough toilets for the amount of people in attendance and not enough bar staff but some good shows. Certainly easier to get to than going up to London

My first time at ballet. Absolutely enjoyed the production of Swan Lake by Mathew Bourne. Worth every penny. It was all very well organised. The restaurant is not very good, poor choice of food, would go next time rather somewhere else for dinner.
