From the extortionate and complex booking process to arriving on a wet winter night to find no cloakroom facilities were being opened !! To no programs being sold by Ushers in the auditorium !!! My friend was forced to descend from the Circle to come back empty handed as they had, "run out of programs"!! You couldn't make this up!... More

The venue is a little tired but is really good. We had seats near the front and the quality of the lights and sound were really good. There is a nice little tuck shop and toilets are ok, could do with more of course. Location is good with lots of nearby parking.

What an amazing show! I highly recommend you watch this, the performance is an eccentric collaboration of pure entertainment, it is an emotional array of sadness, truth and happiness! John Partridge has completely shocked me with his theatrical talent, his performance is oscar winning, his voice was stunning! Hats off to all the cast, I saw the show on Tuesday... More

Show line up gets better and better each year its hard to choose which ones to see. Stunning building with lots of thought and love put in during the refurb of some areas. Looking forward to seeing many more shows here this year .

Was at the Opera House Friday 10th February to watch Bianca Del Rio from Rupaul's Drag Race. Such a beautiful venue. Feel like I was transformed into the 1900's. Really loved the decor. Could see Bianca from my seats. Hadn't been in before and was amazed it was even there.

In answer to the previous review regrading the expensive prices, this is not really down to the Winter-gardens itself, which is essentially an event venue. The event they refer to is the annual magic convention which I agree for a day ticket is very expensive. However if the tickets are booked well in advance it's great value indeed with the... More
