What a great venue for an intimate soirée with Lloyd Cole performing an entirely acoustic set of his greatest hits. Fantastic old place steeped in history. No lifts so access is limited to upper floors Worth checking out what’s on.More

This is now the third time we have visited since moving into the area. It is a beautiful old theatre and has been lovingly restored, tiny but grand I would highly recommend it you are so close to the artists.
