Now its 2017, no matter whether the weather is sunny or rainy, one thing that’s always fun is going to the theatre for a show. Here in Torquay, we are lucky enough to have a total of 3 theatres, all with their own individual sense of style and entertainment! There is “TOADS” Little Theatre, just a short stroll around the corner from our hotel which promises to be a great night out with something to entertain everyone, from well-known classics, thrillers and comedies to ground-breaking works which offer challenges to audiences and performers alike. Or how about Babbacombe Theatre, just a short car drive away? This year will see ‘The Beach Boys Story’, Omid Djalili & G4 live in concert to name just a few! And then there is of course, the Princess Theatre down on the seafront near Torquay harbour (about a 30 minute walk from our hotel) which always has spectacular shows throughout the year. 2017 promises some amazing shows such as ‘That’l Be The Day’, ‘Grease- the Musical’ and even ‘Flashdance- the Musical’. 

Here is a quick run-down of the biggest shows at the different theatres;
