‘Best Theatre in the area! Firstly I am ashamed that I live half an hour away and have only just found this place!!! We went to the Gary Delaney show with some friends. We were SO pleasantly surprised by this fab little theatre. Friendly, comfy, good bar, wonderful atmosphere. Felt like an Edinburgh Festival venue! We WILL be back! Thank you!’ – TripAdvisor
‘A great friendly theatre. Visited here last night to watch Bye Bye Baby Live last night. The whole experience was just fab, what a lovely well run establishment trying so hard to keep going in these difficult times. There is a lot of varied entertainment lined up in the near future. If you are in the area as a local or visitor, please see what’s on and join in the fun!’ – TripAdvisor

‘Superb Local Theatre that deserves support It was the highlight of our short break and we are so glad we decided to attend and see Chris Bannister who performed the Music of John Denver. We found it easy to book and also place drinks orders all online. The venue a former night club has been turned into an intimate live entertainment venue which has a first class sound system. Audience was friendly and welcoming and we were able to meet and chat with the venue owner Jakki. What an absolute gem this is and is worthy of regular support. We will definitely return when we are back in Haverigg. We enjoyed the tale Jakki told us of Johnny Vegas visiting Wakefield!’ – TripAdvisor
‘As a venue it exceeded expectations I was part of an organisation that booked the Beggar’s Theatre for an event in June 2019. As a venue it exceeded expectations. It was perfect for our evening of poetry readings and musical performance. Lighting and sound were excellent. The flexible nature of the auditorium meant we could have a cabaret set-up which suited the event, with a bar available. Feedback from performers and audience was positive. I hope we will be able to put on another event there in the future.‘ -TripAdvisor
‘Amazing. Love this venue and the acts that appear here. Had a great night seeing Mark Thomas – amazing that someone like him came all the way to Millom.‘ – TripAdvisor
An intimate theatre and nowhere better for comedy. It is remarkable that top acts find the Beggars. It is then natural that they then want to return. You are really in the presence of the performers – whereas they would be a dot in the distance at the Apollo. And the same works so well for small-scale touring theatre which can be very powerful there.
Lots of eateries nearby in the square and an outstanding real ale pub.‘ – TripAdvisor
