looks a bit corporate now, I think but I bow to the majority

Click on "More" at the top right of the task bar on the site and then click on Forum! No....not obvious!

It means we're safe in our little enclave

This is a local forum, for local people :P

Love the new site layout

I like the 'Opening Soon' and 'Closing Soon' section on the home page , that's a great idea.

This site used to have a very useful searchable database of productions across the entire country. A big benefit for fans of particular writers and performers.

The new site seems to think there are only a handful of Shakespeare productions scheduled in the whole of the UK:

To me it shows:

All's Well and As You Like It at the RSC

Two performances of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare

The Henry VI trilogy both at the Globe itself and on tour.

Technically that's only five Shakespeare productions. There is almost certainly a lot more out there, but this site is no way of finding it.

Ive given it a shot but I dont like the new layout, as someone else said, it does feel very corporate (dare I say, bland) and not very theatrebased. and the fact that the 'editors picks' is the prime position and not the latest news is really annoying. Even when you click on the news tab its still not prominant and its a jumble of boxes and sections. I dont want to be told what to read, I go mainly to see the latest news in the world of theatre.  Think ill bookmark the forum and get my news etc from another source.

The site looks really good to me - somehow "clean", which conjures an aura of authoritativeness which was absent from the previous "parish pump" look.

My only quibble is with the News section, because you have to drill down to "All News" to find any news which isn't deemed sexy. I only realised this after I followed a tweet link to the WoS News that Liz Forgan has been appointed Chair of Bristol Old Vic. I found that this news story had been posted on WoS for four or five days but I'd been unaware because it hadn't been included as a "Pick".

Much better, and the opening/closing soon section alone is worth the price of admission.
