And a 'joy' it was! Tom Gleeson would have to be one of the most talented and nuanced comedians in the country. The show was short (one hour) and he held the audience in the palm of his hand. Plenty of laughs, none greater than...More

We enjoyed a drink in the forecourt, and the breeze on a hot day was fabulous. The Nutcracker was amazing. A great pre Christmas treat.

First time at the Lyric Theatre. Wonderful seats in the balcony section with a great view of the stage. Sound quality was good. Not much leg room to stretch but took advantage of the interval to stretch the legs.
