Cosy venue but not very wheelchair accessible. Didn’t get our ticket checked once either which isn’t very comforting. “Wheelchair space” was literally a tiny space at the end of a row.

Been to pantomimes for the last few years, the grandchildren love them. Also go to shows through the year. Friendly staff, nice bar for the intermission., and bus terminal across the road. Every seat has a good view.
