We saw the Joe Lycett show here which was amazing however the venue is sadly lacking, very friendly staff at the bar but ordered drinks in advance for the interval to find they were not ready and huge queues at the bar. Needs better organasation.More

Saw Griff Rhys Jones here. He is fantastic, however, the venue was poorly seated, extremely cramped. The pricing for can of Coke was £1.50. 100 ml (tiny tub) of ice cream was £2.50 a pop. Extortionate. Service slow. Pity, as it spoilt the evening.

This 'concert' hall offers both shows and cinema, each in a comfortable and attractive facility. Bar services are available at shows. There is local transport and car parking nearby.

Second visit to see this band. Good venue for a smaller gig. Able to get up and dance if you want. Bar accepts card payments which is good.

The venue itself is good, the facilities are ok. However the seating can be very mixed as the chairs are not fixed seating. The rows are made up of individual chairs so the leg room can be at a premium as the theatre fill's up...More
