A great old theatre beautifully maintained with original features. As you'd expect the seating is not the comfortable armchair of a modern cinema but adequate. Good disable access to the right of the entrance. Nice bar area, prices about town pub level. Best parking is Grosvenor square about 5 min walk (open car park next to multi story) £2 after 6pm, will avoid the rush out of the West Park road parking.
We very much enjoyed the Christmas panto Snow White a few days ago. The theatre is large and airy with seating in the stalls, dress circle, rear circle and balcony. We sat in the dress circle with good views - the rear circle is steeper and balcony high up. We were near full capacity (2,300) and there was a great atmosphere. I sometimes have a problem sitting in theatre seats for two hours but not here, the seats are very comfortable. The theatre has benefitted from a recent refurbishment and as well as a grand feel to the interior there is disabled access from street level and spaces for wheelchairs in the auditorium.

The theatre isn't great. It needs a modern refresh in general. However, the plays offered are very good, which brings 3 stars for the environment to 4 for the plays.
Fabulous venue. Had never been there until 1.5 years ago (been in Area for over 10 years), now, have been about 7 times!

Student theatre providing good value entertainment by performing arts societies at the university. Converted lecture theatre complete with theatrical lighting, curtains, speakers etc.
This is the theatre that is often used by university amateur dramatics groups such as the Light Operatic Society, Showstoppers and so on. The 'theatre' is basically a converted lecture theatre (that is still used for lectures during the day) - but it works well. You forget that you're in a lecture theatre once the show starts...and the shows are normally exceptionally good!
