Please remember that cheaper seats often do not offer the same view / location quality as top price ones, and that ticket prices are designed to reflect this difference.

Details below are based on "first impressions" in October 2022. Readers are encouraged to add information from their own visits.

All seats are modern and well padded with two arm rests.

  • Stalls
  • Dress Circle
  • Upper Circle

Stalls

Layout

Entirely flexible. Seats can surround the stage on two, three or all four sides, with steps between rows if required. Alternatively, a stage can be set at one end of the theatre, with seats facing it.

The dress circle overhangs the back two rows of stalls. It does not affect the view from any seat.
 

Legroom

Depends on layout. In some configurations, some rows are raised with a bar to rest feet on. This allows “dangle room” for the legs of taller primates.

The front row may have less legroom with a stage in front affecting it.
 

Choosing seats in general

The theatre boasts that there is not a bad seat in the house. The monkey agrees. Read “changes for the current production” for details of shows currently running.

General hazard notes

Long rows and few exits mean a squeeze along to your central seats.

Some rows may have rails in front and seats set high behind them, making them less suitable for shorter theatregoers.
 

Changes for the current production

As You Like It
“In The Round” with seats on four sides.

There should be no issue as to which side you sit on, as the show is played to all sides equally and every seat is very close to the action.

There are steps between all rows, with rear rows raised further (see below).

The stage height is not confirmed, but if similar to the previous show then row A has legroom suitable for those up to around 5ft 6, without space for legs to extend as the very low (mid-calf height) stage is in front.

The longer two sides have four long rows and two sets of three “corner” seats as row E. 

Rows B and C have legroom suitable for those up to at least 5ft 10 or so. Row D for around 5ft 7. Row E is a raised row with “dangle space” for the taller up to around 6ft or more – conversely, perhaps less comfortable for the shorter person.

Seats B1, 17, 29 and 45 at the ends of rows have nothing in front, unlimited legroom.

Premium seats run central B and C. The monkey would ignore them and grab the ends of the row top non-premium price seats – the end singles for legroom alone. Or go for row A in front (if legroom isn’t an issue) or better still B and C in the shorter blocks.

At second price in the longer blocks, take row E which is cheaper and raised higher.

The shorter sides have seats C34 and 65 without anything in front for 90% of the width.

In these blocks, rows E and F are both raised higher and have rails in front to lean on. The shorter may find this tricky, but others will enjoy the view at second price in row F.

In summary, for all blocks the choice is between central view or easy access to the exits. There really isn’t a lot to pick between rows except price and how many heads you wish to look over, plus how easy it is to do so.

If pushed, the monkey would probably opt for second price seats on E or F first, or seats with legroom at top non-premium prices.

Rows B and C have legroom suitable for those up to at least 5ft 10 or so. Row D for around 5ft 7. Row E on the “long sides” and both E and F on the “Short sides” are raised rows with rails in front to lean on and “dangle space” for the taller up to around 6ft or more – conversely, perhaps less comfortable for the shorter person.

Seats B1, 17, 29 and 45 at the ends of rows have nothing in front, unlimited legroom. Seats C34 and 65 have nothing in front for 90% of the width.

All seats except row E on the “long sides” and row F on the “short sides” are “premium price”. The monkey would take the end singles for legroom alone. Otherwise, if willing to pay it, it would take row A (if legroom isn’t an issue) or rows B and C.

At second price in the longer blocks, take row E which is cheaper and raised higher, or likewise F in the shorter blocks.

Dress Circle

Layout

Called the "First Balcony" in this theatre.

Entirely flexible. Seats can surround the stage on two, three or all four sides. Alternatively, a stage can be set at one end of the theatre, with seats facing it.

The upper circle overhangs row B. It does not affect the view from any seat.

Rails run across the front of all rows, double height at the aisles. These do not affect views.

The second row is raised high above the row in front, almost as if it is a balcony in itself.

Seats B 1, 2, 24 and 28 are single long corner seats in their own enclave.
 

Legroom

Row A has legroom for those up to around 5ft 9 or so.

Row B is set high, suitable for those up to 6ft or more with “dangle space” for legs. Less suited to the shorter theatregoer, perhaps.

Seats B 1, 2, 24 and 28 have plenty of legroom on one side, but none at the longer end. Still suitable for those up to around 5ft 10 or so.
 

Choosing seats in general

All seats have clear views, but the taller will want to avoid A for comfort, and claustrophobic will want the ends of rows as it is a squeeze past folk to the middle.

Row B is the more interesting. Seats B 1, 2, 24 and 28 are single long corner seats and are probably going to be coveted. Probably intended as “double seats” at one time, there is insufficient space for legroom for a second person, so you get two to yourself, even if the legroom is oddly triangular. Monkey could nest there very happily.

The rest of B is raised high above A but still feels close to the action. Not one for the shorter theatregoer who cannot reach the footrest, but fine for others.

There is likely to be no preference as to which side you sit on, as the show is likely played to all sides equally and every seat is very close to the action.

Premium seats occupy the central area of the long sides. The monkey wouldn’t bother – stalls are closer with more legroom for the bananas.

The monkey would take cheaper B over A on the shorter sides first. Similar views at a lower price.

Upper Circle

Layout

Called the "Second Balcony" in this theatre.

The circle is fairly high, with row B having a noticeable downwards angle to the stage. It does not feel too far away and the focus is on the action below.

Seats can surround the stage on two, three or all four sides. Alternatively, a stage can be set at one end of the theatre, with seats facing it.

Rails run across the front of all rows, double height at the aisles. These do not affect views.

The second row is raised high above the row in front, almost as if it is a balcony in itself.

There is likely to be no preference as to which side you sit on, as the show is likely played to all sides equally and every seat is very close to the action.

The central seats on the long sides are second price. The monkey finds them average. You could go for the ends at third price, or the shorter sides front row. The singles at third price are also worth a look.

That said, the monkey would take bottom price row B over A on the shorter sides first. Similar views at a lower price.

General price band information

Theatres use "dynamic pricing." Seat prices change according to demand for a particular performance. Prices below were compiled as booking originally opened. Current prices are advised at time of enquiry.

Based on paying FULL PRICE (no discount!) for tickets, site writers and contributing guests have ALSO created the colour-coded plans for "value for money," considering factors like views, comfort and value-for-money compared with other same-priced seats available.

For a full discussion, opinions, reviews, notes, tips, hints and advice on all the seats in this theatre, click on "BEST SEAT ADVICE" (on the left of your screen).

On the plans below:
Seats in GREEN many feel may offer either noticeable value, or something to compensate for a problem; for example, being a well-priced restricted view ticket. Any seats coloured LIGHT GREEN are sold at "premium" prices because the show producer thinks they are the best. The monkey says "you are only getting what you pay for" but uses this colour to highlight the ones it feels best at the price, and help everybody else find equally good seats nearby at lower prices.

Seats in WHITE, many feel, provided about what they pay for. Generally unremarkable.

Seats in RED are coloured to draw attention. Not necessarily to be avoided - maybe nothing specific is wrong with them, other than opinions that there are better seats at the same price. Other times there may be something to consider before buying – perhaps overpricing, obstructed views, less comfort etc.

Please remember that cheaper seats often do not offer the same view / location quality as top price ones, and that ticket prices are designed to reflect this difference.
