Whether you enjoy your experience in this beautifully refurbished theatre could depend on the type of customer you are. If you are a large family with small children who you don't expect to sit in their seats and are happy to allow them to roam freely during a performance plus scramble across laps whilst repeatedly kicking the backs of the...

As a family we went to the sleeping beauty Xmas panto. It's was really engaging for all and the theatre was excellent. We are going to go again and already can't wait.

It's panto time and what a great laugh we had, they still manage to get the adult humour in and the kids are oblivious to it . Traditional panto with the modern twist and some great singing voices. Really enjoyed our afternoon. Theatre needs to greatly improve its toilet facilities, and maybe a parking concession with the local council would... More

Visited Catherine tate and David Essex, cats and hairspray. It's a bit dated, there is so little food choices when people come straight from work. Parking nearby is a ripoff and if you park at buttermarket and the show overruns Ipswich Borough council won't let you out. Toilets for ladies are inadequate and upstairs is so dated, sparse seating, poor... More

Went to see The elvis years. Great sound and no dud notes. What more can be asked for when going to a show.

We saw David Essex perform last night on his 'Missing you tour' It was fabulous and it was great listening to all his old and new songs. We sat in The Circle Block D and seat 39 40 which gave us a good view of the stage.

Recently saw David Essex here and the sound setup is awful and theatre itself is NOT sign posted at all!..There isn't one sign post to tell you where the theatre is in the whole of Ipswich,and once you find it the carpark is just big enough for a handful of cars. The speakers in the theatre are terrible and the... More
