Great local venue. The theatre is intimate and comfortable. We always go Pullman. Seen loads of big comedy stars here and am never dissapointed. Good bar, we always order our interval drinks when we first go to the bar, saves loads of time!

Seen so many big names at a small venue. Up close and personal. Midge Ure, Michael MacIntyre, Russel Howard to name but a few. Worth following. Looking forward to my next visit to see tribute band Cold Place, only £17 a ticket. Great value

I was here for the Record Fair in April. Excellent venue. Good selection of vinyl and CD's. Had a good rummage and chat with some of the sellers. And found a few records for my collection.
