Really enjoyed Monday night's showing of The History Boys, performed by a young, very very talented team of actors - very well done all!

If a local Amateur theatre can be professional this is it. Bringing outstanding directors with both age and experience , and youth and ideas. A traditional take on the play Charley's Aunt, and an edgy take on Romeo and Julie set in current times, the range of productions rivals anything seen in the city.

They put on some great shows. The snacks aren't ridiculously overpriced and it's very easily accessible for wheelchairs. Some shows are better than others but nearly all are worth seeing.

Madness of George III. Excellent. All shows in main theatre and studio are of a high standard. Comedies, Musicals, Dramas, The Xmas Pantomime all worth going to see. Something for everyone during the year.

The Garrick panto is a stalwart of our Xmas plans. So much nicer than the faceless razzamatazz of the city centre productions. It's everything a panto should be and kids love it. Staff are always very friendly and helpful, clearly happy to be there. Only downside is lack of parking, but get there early and you're fine. We're lucky to... More
