Owner description: The Anvil is one of Hampshire’s largest entertainment venues and offers a wide range of entertainment for all ages including stand-up comedy, theatre, ballet & opera, classical music, pop concerts and pantomime. This year we’ve welcomed top class performers including Lee Evans, Boy George and Billy Ocean and also had the pleasure of hosting one-off events such as the last UK concert appearance of the great pianist Alfred Brendel.

We have been going to Anvil to watch the relaxed sitting of the Pantomime for the last few years and it's brilliant they have thought of everything booster seats for the children, low lighting quiet rooms so if the child is finding it difficult to cope in the auditorium they can go here and watch it on a smaller screen. Definitely worth a visit.

A good venue with excellent visibility from all the seats. Car parking in the town centre is within a short walk (indoors) and there are plenty of restaurants to go to after the show.

We visited to hear the talented young people from Hampshire County Youth Orchestras perform. It was easy to collect tickets, though some indication of a queuing system might help at busy times. The staff at the venue are polite, friendly and very well-informed. Comfortable seating (you'd need to plan well in advance if needing wheelchair space). Acoustics are superb with clear, crisp sound.
Looking forward to out next visit!
