Over zealous security! I was in the front row and at the end of the gig I approached the stage waiting for a set list from the engineer on the stage. Whilst I was waiting a lady security guard rushed over with her arms out...More

Went here to see above concert, venue easy to get to as taxis just around the corner. Clean, welcoming, friendly staff. Seating we had was excellent not too far from action. Lovely size not too big either. Thoroughly enjoyed and would definitely go there again.

We attended the David Sedaris spoken word at the St. David’s Hall. There isn’t a bad seat in the venue. It’s a lovely theatre. It was hot in Cardiff when we were there and it was very comfortable inside the theatre. The show was amazing....More

A venue that should be the pride of Cardiff is anything of the sort. It needed a refit 15 years ago and is slowly falling apart and looks like a second rate venue. My booked seat was broken. Moved from my second seat and third...More
