Went here to see Alan Carr (including his bit about Tripadvisor reviews as well). Good venue but wasn't full so maybe a bit too big for that kind of event. Had an issue with a... read more

great venue for concerts and comedy tour, spent many a night seeing lots of stars from Lady Gaga supporting Pussycat dolls to Will Young to Alan Carr more recently. Also offers ice skating along with indoor markets and other events. Lots of parking onsite and many car parks near by also.

Have seen this building many times but never been inside. We were so pleased to see Comicon was on while we were there the Bank Holiday weekend in August. The staff were fantastic... Very friendly, made everyone feel welcome & gave clear information.

My friends and I spent the day in the Purbeck Hall today. We had tickets for the Air Festival hospitality. I cannot praise the team today enough. From the moment we arrived, we were treated with the greatest consideration. We were escorted to our table and the plan for the day was explained clearly to us. The coffee, orange juice... More

We visited the Bic for the Micheal Mcintyre show. Venue is dated and the price of drinks is extortionate, £1.70 for a 500 ml bottle of water.

Came here to see Michael McIntyre who was amazing However the venue seemed very dated. Haven't been to a BIC for years and felt it was stuck in the early 90's. But sadly not early 90's drinks prices £10.40 for a pint of beer and rose wine which would only be described as paint stripper served in plastic cups!!! It... More

Excellent entertainment here and always something on - have been here many times and have never had a bad view of the stage. Linked to the Pavillion Theatre nearby - plenty of places to eat and drink in the nearby vicinity. Good parking nearby but would not necessarily park at the theatre as can be very difficult to get out... More

Have been here various times to see various shows and concerts. Car Park is always so busy - so if you can reserve a space - best way! Bar is quite quick, but a bit of a struggle.
