A fantastic, vibrant and innovative space. There's always something on with a cinema, a great theatre, poetry slams, a fab bar and great sausage rolls! So proud to have this superb venue on our doorstep. Recently undergone a huge transformation project (formally the Tricycle) and now in a great building with fantastic plays.
This is a venue that I have visited over the past 40 years, but it's the first time I have been since it became the Kiln theatre. It is bright, functional and welcoming. The staff were informative and helpful. I was pleased by the level of comfort in the theatre itself. We used the cafe before hand. There is a simple but sufficient menu with lots of light offerings. I was actually quite surprised.
