This was our first visit and we definitely plan to book again next year. We enjoyed the play, the marquee bar/tea shop was excellent value with lovely staff. Booking and collecting the tickets was easy.

We very much enjoyed this play - it was comparable to any West End production. It was our first visit to the theatre and we would definitely book again when we visit the area. We were impressed with the leg room when seated.

Early apprehension soon melted away thanks to a good quality, polished, performance by professional actors. Nice theatre (Jubillee hall). Will definitely go again.
