Good value seats

For those looking to purchase tickets on a budget, seats towards the middle of the rear left and right sections of the Stalls and Circle offer clear views, despite being angled towards the stage. Although the view may at times be restricted, these seats are close to the stage and facial expressions will be visible. Seats in the Balcony offer clear views of the stage for a discounted price.

Premium seats

Seats in the front-centre of the Stalls and the Circle offer unobstructed views of the stage for a premium price. For large-scale musical productions, it would be best to sit in the front of the Circle, which is close to the stage and allows you to take in the show as a whole.

An absolute perfect view of the stage. The cast made eye contact with us multiple times. Being the front row, there is plenty of space to stretch your legs out. I’ve sat in this area twice now and I think it’s the best section in the theatre. More

There was a speaker blocking the feet of the people on stage. The woman in front of me also kept moving her head which kept blocking the view so I did have to move about quite a lot. It is a good spot in the sense that you are very close to the stage. More
