We are open for free general viewing Tuesday-Saturday noon - 5pm. Please note that we do not at this time have disabled access.
We have an exhibition of ephemera, a merchandise stall with postcards, greetings cards, bags, mugs, tee-shirts etc and of course our friendly staff will be available to regail with tales and the history of the worlds oldest surviving music hall.
Unfortunately from now on we will no longer be allowing photography at our evening shows, as we will be engaging the services of a professional photographer to take pictures of our events.
We will still be allowing photography of our daytime shows, with the exception of our junior acts, provided the photographer has completed model release forms from the performers.
