Best Theatre for Live Entertainment!!!
Nov 2019
The Regent theatre is not just an incredible place to see a performance, but a amazing place to feel like the staff and workers actually care about each performance being the best show yet!

Every year the stage is taken over by an amazing group of actors, Singers and Dancers to grace the stage and I really feel there is sometimes for everybody!

The theatre has amazing faculty's with a bar located in the circle lounge and plenty of toilets, Plus the seats are great. Furthermore if your an artist or touring production the technical facility's are amazing to.

Don't judge a book.....

From the outside and even from some of the public areas The Regent Theatre isn't the most welcoming or attractive places to visit. The bars are cramped and very dated. The toilets in the circle are quite wierd and access is difficult. However the auditorium is pleasant, comfortable and warm once you get inside. The sound system (acoustics) is also good and clear. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Parking is not particularly good in the town centre which isn't helpful.

Always a good night at the Regent.
Feb 2020
Took advantage of a two for one offer to see the La Boheme opera. A four hour opera reduced to four half an hour scenes. Very well done and the overall presentation was excellent. Comfortable seats and friendly staff added to the experience. A great "night at the opera"

Always 5*
Dec 2019
When ever we come, whatever we see, we always say what abrilliant venue the Regent is, and that Ipswich should be proud!! We know that the building is undergoing renervations, and that maybe the toilets are not up to scratch (maybe the clientelle could go to the loo before they leave home) but the promise of art deco is just round the corner.
The staff are always very friendly, and no request goes unnoticed.
Long may it serve the local community!

Great evening!
Nov 2019
Hi visited to see 'An Evening With Lenny Henry'. We had circle seats B row, so great views & no one was in front of us or next to us. Looked like a few hadn't turned up for the show. Usually have front stall seats so had never used the Circle bar before, it turned out to be quite spacious & comfortable to sit, drink & chat. All the staff friendly & helpful. This is only our 2nd visit but yet again a great show. Definitely would recommend.

George Michael tribute night
Nov 2019
My daughter and I saw the “ George Michael tribute show “ we had front seats in the circle. The theatre was only half filled but still we enjoyed the show that was really spoiled by the stage lights. The lights were so bright especially when revolving and changing colours. Many times we had to shield our eyes and I found it most uncomfortable. I have attended many shows in the Regent and been on the first row in the circle and this is the first time this has happened. Do the lighting people check whither people will be affected by these powerful lights? I will have to think about returning to the theatre and perhaps have to change my seat. This incident did unfortunately spoil our night.

Disappointed
Nov 2019 • Couples
First visit for a while, my husband & myself were lucky enough to purchase front row seat to a great show last week.

Good points:
Bought our ticket online, very quick & easy.
Friendly, helpful staff.
Lots of great shows.
Jugs of drinking water was available on the bar.

Bad points:
Front row seats must be the worst seats in the house.
So close to the high stage our view was totally blocked.
Could only see the main singer from his knees up!
Couldn't see the seated drummer at all.
Disappointed with the amount of 'single use' plastic glasses with every drink from the bar.

Would we return, yes but we'll never buy front row seats again & we'll bring our own refreshments.
