Great venue, great performance, great night out! Managed to find parking not too far away and walked over. Had pre-booked tickets and these were quickly and easily collected from the box office beforehand. Stunning building inside the hall! Friendly staff - recommended!

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.
