Theatre
“I have only just discovered this wonderful local Theatre and am impressed. From the moment you walk through the doors you will be embraced by the vibrant atmosphere! Great use of colour and light to cheer the soul on a miserable February night. Staff were wonderful and incredibly helpful. We had a vegetarian platter which sounds boring, but was probably the best bar nibble i have ever had. ”
