The previous group of mystery shoppers, who reported to their last meeting in March made a valuable contribution to the New Wolsey and a number of improvements have been implemented as a result of their feedback.

Head of marketing, Andrew Burton, said: "The mystery shopper scheme has a very useful exercise for us.

"By recruiting a new team we will continue to monitor our service and respond to the needs of our customers.

"We'd especially like to hear from young people, people who are new to the area, people from a variety of cultural backgrounds and people who don't usually set foot inside a theatre."
