A return to a favourite venue, this little theatre was showing 12th Night, where confusion reigns. Great fun, good acting, music and singing. And all ended well with the various couples united. You need to book and be prepared for a crush at the cloakroom...More

The eighth district is an older generation’s Vienna at
its finest: and this is what makes it popular with
