This is a lovely venue for music and dance. It’s large enough to offer cheaper seats, but small enough to still feel intimate. Good service at the bar, and prices weren’t that bad for concert venue. As usual, way too long a queue at the...More

Visited yesterday to attend the Salvation Army Christmas Concert. It was excellent and got everyone in the Christmas spirit. They do this concert every year in December with an afternoon or evening performance, reasonable pricing, would recommend

Lovely concert I have been to many times. Sound Quality was excellent and all the singers were first class and we really enjoyed ourselves. Road works are a big problem getting to Broad St.

A beautiful building. We saw Michael Bolton . My husband felt unwell and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful. They moved us down so we had more leg room etc.

A wonderful venue. The acoustics are brilliant. The eateries around are pleasant as a prequel to a show. Parking is a little difficult as was access as a disabled person but we made the most of it.

The stalls at both sides have good views of the stage so should be good for seeing the orchestra
