Our first visit
Aug 2021 • Couples
So nice to be able to see a show live after so long.
My husband and I booked tickets to Northern Soul. Nice greeting on arrival and made our way upstairs to the bar to enjoy a drink before the show. All staff are very friendly and helpful. We booked seats two rows back from the stage and thoroughly enjoyed the show and music
Our first visit to this theatre and would hesitate to book again

The staff were all very helpful and the sound was good. They even had the ice cream lady with a tray of ice cream in tubs at the interval.

A perfect regional theatre
Mar 2020 • Couples
We saw Mark Steel who was superb, but this review is about the venue.

A perfect regional theatre, it’s like a step back in time but every member of staff was delightful. The seats were just about the most comfortable I have known in a theatre. I can’t wait to see more shows there.

Great venue
Mar 2020
People of Weston should be proud of this excellent venue - it is small and friendly and the prices are also very reasonable

The programme is also varied which is good ( a lot of one night stands) Saw Ben Fogle

The theatre is on one of the back streets and not far from the Winter gardens

Places are available to eat beforehand if needed

Weston has a good transport link with buses on the Marine parade and a train station

Booking is easy and tickets can be posted to you

Second half only 30 mins
Jan 2020
Saw Jethro mon 27th jan, 2020. Although very good what we saw of him, we felt we saw more of his support act . Have to say he looked very frail & possibly not in good health!! very sad to see.The second half started at 9pm & we were out by 9.30pm. Unable to e mail the play house direct !!!

Allways a good venue
Jul 2019
My wife and I often go to the playhouse, we book in advance after scrolling down "what's on " The far right and left seats are a tad small if your legs are like mine ( 6'2" ) so anywhere in the middle or even up in the circle has good lag room and a great view of the stage.
Its a nice touch at the interval when the ice cream seller comes out downstairs by the stage, a bit of a bugger if you are up top but well worth the walk.
I hope this helps.

Great typical Panto fun
Dec 2019 • Family
If you want a typical Panto this won’t disappoint
If you want Shakespeare, go to something else
The simplicity of the Playhouse has a charm of it own , locked in a time warp
A Panto without the parking hassle of getting to the Bristol Hippodrome
Bristol City Councils determination to kill of any visitors to the centre of Bristol is working

Fab, Fab and Fab again. If you are looking for a pantomime that has entertainment and laughter then this is a must. I would definately recommend it for all ages, my two teenagers thought it was very funny especially now they get the jokes. I promise you won't be disappointed.
