We went Saturday night and had a brilliant time. The band was excellent, Gary was electrifying, really got the crowd going. If i had to make a tiny complaint, long queues at the bar and as always the ladies toilets. Really had a good time.

Love this theatre, staff always polite and cheerful, always enjoy our night's out here, one small gripe the staff behind the bar were under a bit of pressure due to a lot of people arriving at once, overall an enjoyable evening.

Russell Watson show very badly organised, late starting, stewards didn't seem to have much knowledge of seating plan. Seats were awful, uncomfortable and crammed in with no leg room . Thank goodness for Russell !!

Great theatre holding only about 300 people. Free car park next door (up a small ramp). They put on a wide selection of different acts. Recommended venue.

Premier inn at Telford Central (Euston way). It's right by the train station and about 5min drive to the theatre.
