A friend and I attended the theatre to see Benjamin Zephaniah, an idol of mine. Benjamin Zephaniah was incredible, as expected and was lovely enough to stay behind at the end to meet everyone that had come to see him. The staff were also absolutely fantastic. I use a crutch to walk and the staff couldn't do enough to help me to make sure I was as comfortable as possible before, during and after the performance. I love how close to the performance you are, every member of staff is incredibly polite and the whole theatre is very welcoming. The performances are also very well priced. The food and the restaurant staff are also lovely and again, well priced. I would strongly recommend buying a ticket and going to watch a performance!

Excellent show first half was dedicated to Roy Orbison having seen the man himself 3 times Barry was very close to him. 2nd half was totally Travelling Wilburys with various band members being the other Wilburys. Show was first class but downside was cramped seating for such a lovely theatre it's a shame you look forward to a leg stretch.

A nice traditional, cozy theatre with friendly staff and ornate, over the top, features. Top advice if you want to eat before a show book with the theatre. The restaurant is small and there appears to be nowhere to eat nearby. Crewe has a wide variety of pubs but most seem not to do food (if any near the theatre do please post correction) nor were there apparently any restaurants or open cafe bars nearby. On a Thursday night near the theatre Subway was the only food place open & we had nice hot sandwiches from the friendly staff there but we were surprised there weren't other choices. The Lyceum Theatre website advises to book a table or a fixed price meal with the ticket which we hadn't done and they had no spaces. The food looked good. The main bar is small but pleasant enough. We didn't try the smaller Circle bar upstairs. Seats like old fashioned theatre or cinema seats - it is an old building. Overall we had a good night seeing the comedian David Baddiel, enjoyed the show but hadn't realised the theatre is a bit isolated of an evening as it is in a shopping and market area where most places are closed. Handy for cash machines along the shopping street. A short taxi ride from the station but a bit far to walk if you don't know the area.

Great little theatre for up close and personal shows. Some lovely original decor. Ideal location in Crewe and close to bars and restaurants.
