Magical, loved every minute Infact it was over too quick. Actor's were fenominal. Would def go and see again if I could

5.0 star rating Lynda Cooke from Bristol,


Enjoyed every minute. Cast fantastic and the story was enthralling. We were with our 7 year old granddaughter who after just finishing the book loved it all. Much much better than we thought it could be. Thank you all for such a fantastic night

3 of us have just returned home & all feel deflated.Went to see The lion,witch & wardrobe.The scenery was practically non existent & costumes poor. I've b en to small local productions & felt their efforts were far better. The lion puppet is good but is too solid ,it should have a shaggy main & back legs.All of the animals in the woods were not easy to identify,beavers were in boiler suits with no fur.The witch should of had a sledge .It all felt very low budget on props & customers which is a shame as the tickets aren' t cheap.I would not recommend this show.Tickets expensive and certainly no wow factor

2.0 star rating Karen from Bristol,


No one or no where mention this... A musical, too loud and too long. My neice cried, it was far too noisy. 2 stars for the set and puppets

2.0 star rating Jo from Bristol,


We took our daughters (8 & 10) to see this, thinking it would be similar to the book and previous adaptations for tv. It wasn’t anything like either. At times it was very dark and creepy and my youngest daughter was terrified when the creatures with animal skulls for heads appeared. There wasn’t a warning about how much the story had been changed or that for some people, it may not be appropriate. I didn’t enjoy it much and wouldn’t recommend it for junior school children if I hadn’t known I was going to see The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe, I doubt I’d have had that many clues during the performance.

My daughter (15) and I have always loved the Narnia books & films and couldn’t wait to see it on stage.. it was nothing like the original and struggled to understand some of the scenes. The characters didn’t suit the story and some of the scenes didn’t make much sense. The props were very low budget and felt more like an amateur performance. Very disappointed !
