Been to several shows at this new theatre. Great asset for Marlborough. Excellent acoustics. Comfortable seats. Parking building across the road which is free after hours. Right on edge of town center. Walking distance to accomodation and restaurants. Combined clubs next door. Will be even better when finished

First time to this theatre and was impressed with the sounds quality and seating.. just a weeny nervous about going down the stairs to our seats as there is no hand rail.. Apart from that no faults we all had a fantastic time watching The Ten Tenors, they were amazing..

Has been a great theatre in its time and I am looking forward to the new theatre which is being built next to the Clubs of Marlborough. Great variety of shows and local productions which have been highly rated. There are a lot of very talented and passionate locals who put on great productions.
