Went t watch the jazz festival finale in the Spanish Room and were impressed with the decor throughout this building. There are several venues within it that hosts lots of different things and it is definitely worth a visit. Drinks were very expensive though!!

My partner and I went to see The matinee performance of the Wedding Singer. Excellent show and although a bit slow at times - the cast were all brilliant and should be proud of themselves for their professionalism.

I booked tickets and went to see the musical,''Evita''. Second night on tour and what a musical. We both thoroughly enjoyed it. Went for a pre-meal dinner next door prior to musical.

A very nice theatre in a real treasure of a building. The surroundings are superb and a real credit to the not for profit group who run it.

As clean se to the front as possible, the seats are on a slight incline but easier to see nearer the front.
