Our first visit to The Sands and a great night's entertainment. Excellent staff, fast food and drink service, great value food (my chicken burrito & chips for £6.95 was massive and tasted great), good barprices and The Glammantics put on a fabulous 2-hour show featuring lots of 70s and 80s music favourites. All in all - BRILLIANT! Can't wait to... More

Visited this show for the first tome and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. All legends were very entertaining but Lady GaGa and Robbie Williams stole the show for me. If you get the chance visit this show

There is a saying 'don;t put down to malice what can be put down to stupidity'....in the case of the sands venue I have no idea which is the more accurate description I... More

I think there may be some confusion to your experience on the evening. Food is served on the main floor only from the grill menu and not the 2 or 3 course menu, People that book a dining table on the two tiered areas of the venue are given precidence over people wishing to dine on the main floor as...
