Monty python the musical - great nights entertainment. Staff very helpful. Ice cream very overpriced £10 for 4 small cartons of local ice cream which is available in shops for 50 pence each. Not fair.

I have not booked the box, but have watched those who did and they are usually having great fun. If you can afford it, then yes, it's worth it for a special experience.
