I went to see this musical probably two years ago and thought it was hilarious. I was gutted that Broadway stole this show from us as I really wanted to see it again sometime.

What a fantastic theatre show, it was brilliant, I think it is very clever how they have designed their set and how they pull off some of the most memorable parts of the film. We were very close to the front so got to see...More

A really fun afternoon tea. Blue candy floss that tasted like pineapple, eggs that are made from chocolate with a delicious mousse, sandwhiches that look like roast beef but taste of chocolate. Chocolate tea and pretty milkshake bottles in a comfortable,relaxed environment. Would definitely recommend.

It was a very good show overall, however I give 3 stars because it was something I wouldn’t go back and watch it again as well as if you have to watch only one show others are definitely worth it more e.g. Les miserables !

This show was fab! Entertaining from start to finish and having got a deal on ‘kids week’ meant it was amazing value too! Highly recommend and I would even go as far as saying we will go back again!
