“Best theatre in the world?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

I love the building and the experience of theatre in the round is fabulous. As a previous season ticket holder I have always been a fan. After a long period of non attendance we went to watch Staurday Night Sunday Morning. A good performance. The food is good, the coffe is good. Nice place to pop in just for a beer too. A must see venue for any vistor to Manchester.
