This is next to the Towner Gallery and looks closed - but is a beautiful building that still operates as a function venue. Beautiful building and preserved in traditional glory.

Checked this place out on a walking tour of E’bourne. Rather pretty place. Quite unassuming in first appearance but when you take time to stop and admire it is rather nice. Well work a visit and easy to locate in town.

its a shame the entertainment you want to see is in a winter garden///most are old musty buildings that should be renovated or pulled down to make way fortodays modern theatres.

No parking in the area, so get here early. Theatre is different to what you expect, you go in ad then downstairs, Disabled entrance around the side, so get here earlier to find it. Not enough toilets in the break, so a queue as usual....More

A bit old fashioned but went to see Johnny Cash Roadshow there and it was loads of fun. Good views of the stage and you could pre-order drinks for the interval

We had booked tickets to this theatre a couple of months ago, we saw Ellington sings Elllington. Music was good, acustics all good, staff friendly, limited food, theatre bar. Building old but well taken care of.

Been to the Winter Garden before for exhibitions and the Beer Festival for which it is well suited. However, it's getting used much more during the major refurbishment of the Congress Theatre. We saw a tribute concert here and without the raked seating the view...More

Chairs are far too small, even for average sized guests. We left at half time because of this, would not use again for a show.
