A lovely theatre that offers multiple amounts of entertainment and creative arts opportunities for not just little ones but for adults and the older generation too.
A great venue for a night out or any entertainment purpose, The Point is quality.
I love this little theatre. It is small and intimate and is a really great place to introduce children to the theatre. As it's on a small scale you get a real feeling of being involved with the performances as the actors do a great job of encouraging audience participation. It's very good value for money too when you compare the cost of taking a family to the larger theatres. My children have certainly told me that some of their favourite shows were ones we've seen at The Point. You have to park a fair way away in the Swan Centre as there is no car park so allow plenty of time to get parked if you are going to a show. The staff seem to be really friendly and enjoy their jobs.
The Point is a great place to catch all sorts of productions - from small plays by well known (but underground!) theatre companies, to big amatuer musicals. Their film nights are also very good value, and it saves having to go into Southampton! The Children's entertainment is also very good, with a lot of Theatre in Education shows. The Cafe Bar could do with providing a few more options for vegetarian/vegan/gluten free meals, and is priced a little expensively (i think). The Point also provides dance classes for adults and children. Now i have moved away from the area i do miss The Point, and always check what's on if i'm visiting my relatives for the week!
