Upper Circle guide

The Upper Circle is deeply curved with a very steep rake ensuring good views in the centre of the section. Seats towards the ends of rows are restricted with a side-view, and the front of the stage is usually cut off. These seats should be avoided where possible.

The overhang from the old Balcony exists from Row B and creates a problem for the rear four rows. The best seats can be found in the centre of the Upper Circle, but be aware that this section offers the most restrictions.


The Circle bar is 23 steps up from the main foyer and has moveable seating. There is also the Terrace Bar, which offers happy hours on cocktails before performances.


Women’s and Men’s toilets can be found off the Circle bar.
