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.

Good hall with excellent sound. The classical concerts there are wondrous and much cheaper than going up to London. Good bar can buy sandwiches and ice cream but no restaurant or cafe

A good provincial theatre showing a good selection of plays. Entrance area could be made more appealing.

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.
