Upper Circle guide

The Upper Circle is the highest tier of seating in the theatre, split into three blocks by two vertical aisles that run the length of the section, with steps to reach each row. With a seating capacity of over 500, the Upper Circle is a similar size to the Grand Circle, although it is much shallower with wider rows.

Row A reaches up to 78 seats, including slips, whilst growing to a maximum of 54 seats per row toward the rear. Safety rails in this section may obstruct the view, whilst the distance of seats from the stage could be a hindrance for some.

Legroom is limited here, seats can feel narrow, and the theatre ceiling could slightly restrict the view toward the very rear of the section.


A bar and kiosk are available on the Upper Circle level.


Men’s toilets are located on the left-hand side of the auditorium when facing the stage, with women’s toilets located at the rear of the seating.
