Haven't been for some time. I wonder why as it was a great evening with warm friendly staff, a great production and a comfortable, intimate auditorium. The play by the Western Players was excellent. Enjoyed every minute and can't wait for my next visit

Great venue to see live music. Intimate and friendly. I have been a few times now and thoroughly enjoy for a night out of live music. Last night was Wishbone Ash and they were amazing! A great night out!

Great little venue of about 200 seats in the centre of Old Town with easy parking nearby, seats are fairly steeply banked so wherever you sit you get a great view of the stage. Nice little cafe/bar too. Recommended.

Went to watch a music show (TC&I) and the venue was cosy. Sadly, I'd have preferred the option to stand rather than be made to sit, but it didn't affect my enjoyment. The venue was well staffed and had good facilities. I didn't try the...More

Sorry for the late response. All seats at the Arts Centre have a good view. It's only a small venue and the stage can be seen clearly from any position.
