Designed by C.J.Phipps. First opened on 16th April 1870 with the comedy "For Love or Money". The Theatre is currently owned by Nimax Theatres.
The auditorium has three levels - Stalls, Dress Circle and Grand Circle.
Overall, the Stalls offers very good views of the stage. The view is affected from Row M onwards by the overhang of the Dress Circle. There is a light raking in the seating throughout the Stalls which helps with sightlines, and the legroom is good too.
Apart from the extreme side seats, the Dress Circle offers good views of the stage, and feels close to the action due to the intimate size of the theatre. View from Row G onwards are affected by the overhang of the Grand Circle.
Though the theatre is small, the Grand Circle feels quite far from the stage and the legroom at this level is not ideal.
