“We had a fabulous time performing at The Grove Theatre with all the cast feeling like real stars. All your staff did a great job, all so helpful and professional in what they do. We really appreciated your personal support and advice throughout.”

Organiser of 1910 and then WOW! (Girl Guides Centenary)

“We have certainly had very positive feedback with people already asking if we will be doing the same again next year. However, it would not have been so successful if it was not for all the hard work put in by your staff and yourself.”

Organiser of Christmas at the Grove (The Salvation Army)

“The staff at the Grove Theatre are extremely helpful and accommodating – it does quite feel like ‘home’ now to us!”
