We look forward to welcoming you back very soon!
Three generations of us made our first visit to Sleaford Little Theatre yesterday to see the Sleeping Beauty pantomime. We all enjoyed the sing-a-longs, booing the baddies and tittering at the jokes. An enjoyable experience all round. The only problem for me was that the...More

Thanks for your review and I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your visit. We are looking into the problems with our heating woes and I can assure you that it wasn't only you that was cold but the cast and crew also.

Saw "A Fistful of Spaghetti" at the Sleaford Playhouse, a great comedy in a lovely old theatre. Seats were comfortable and, although the bar is a little crowded, that's often true of most theatres. Friendly front of house staff.

Philip, thank you for a very kind review. We are looking to refurb the bar/foyer in the not too distant future to improve the crowding issue.
We look forward to seeing you back soon!
This theatre may be small but it is steeped in history and is indeed very quaint. I've been to large west end theatres with huge productions, but this wonderful venue is intimate and well worth the visit. We endeavour to catch a show here again...More
