Lack of ventilation and leg room makes this an uncomfotable venue
Situated in the leafy Clifton area, a stones throw from Clifton College and the zoo, sits the Redgrave Theatre. It has a very dated facade which looks completely out of place with the rather grand Bathstone facades of the houses; up a few steps, and you are into the foyer/bar area. Two wooden staircases at each side of the foyer take you up to the back of the auditorium seating - be careful once you are in the auditorium as it is steeply raked and there is notheg to hold onto if you are shaky on your legs! (If you are disabled/wheelchair bound, you are escorted around the side of the premises and you enter through one of the emergency exits at the front of the seating.) The view is quite good but the leg room is not and the seats themselves are not that comfortable. Another big drawback to this place is that there doesn't seem to be any ventilation so on a hot night and/or when there is a large audience, it can get very hot, stuffy and undomfortable in the auditorium!
But don't think that you can get a nice drink in the bar at interval time; the bar area is so small that you are more likely to end up on the street outside the theatre as the chances of getting served are pretty slight. This is probably a good thing as you can cool down and get some fresh air before resuming your seat for the second half!
I would recommend taking a bottle of water foir emergency cooling down!!
