  • Ambassador Lounge

    21 February 2018

    45 pounds each for Ambassador lounge, and staffed inadequately. Drinks provided with 15 mins before curtain raise, despite being there 40 mins before start, and then nobody to show you to your seat. Would have missed the start if we waited. 1/2 bottle of champagne and small box of chocolates at 1/2 time and no ice cream. Certainly not worth the money for purple ticket. During the show, unfortunate enough to sit beside a lady who used her mobile phone messaging incessantly in the first half and did not watch the show. I asked her twice to stop. Beginning of the second half and I suggest I would remove her mobile phone if she continued. I heard later that her actions were noted by many as it was a constant light annoyance. She then desisted after a slight elbow and the threat. Surely the staff must have seen this , but no action ??? The show itself was WONDERFUL.

  • Family Night at The Lion King

    20 February 2018

    Myself and family were seated in the upper circle row G- (12 seats) We were very cold - it appears the air conditioning was on- it was blowing my grand-daughters hair! It definitely affected our enjoyment of the show. My grandchildren were cuddling in to keep warm. My husband informed two girl attendants at the back during the interval- they said it would be passed on. Incidentally the bar was very warm!
