What a great place for such a small town. Highly recommended. Easy to find, good parking near by. Pubs and resturants in easy access and a great variety of shows.

There is nowhere else like it - such a HUGE range of entertainments throughout the year. Weʼve bought a Matcham card which helps buy tickets at a reduced price but also encourages us to visit more often. Where else can you watch a salsa jazz band one week and opera the next. Itʼs a joy to visit.
