Visiting Us
Our Cozy Little Theatre Offers…
90 Raked Seats
The first three rows are removable, allowing for flexible staging arrangements or even a dance floor.

We do not operate a seat numbering system, so you can sit where you like on the night. However, if you have any special requirements for seating we are more than happy to accommodate you. Just drop us a line via this site or by calling one of our numbers.

Licensed Bar
See our bar page for details.

Our toilet facilities are made up of 3 enclosed unisex toilets, with a shared sink area. As well as this, we have an individual toilet with a sanitary bin and sink, as well as baby changing facilities. Our disabled toilet is wheelchair accessible and has supporting bars for assistance. There is a wheelchair accessible sink in this toilet. The disabled toilet facilities include an emergency assistance alarm.

Wheelchair Access
We have step free access into the theatre and wheelchair spaces in the auditorium. We also have a fully accessible toilet.

Induction Loop
The loop covers the entire auditorium.

Service dogs are welcome.
