Always a good show and the BIC is a great venue, we had a brilliant view and the theatre was nice and cool on a warm evening.

Saw Riverdance today 17 years after seeing the Show for the first time at the BIC. Sadly it no longer had that special appeal and whilst the dancing/singing was still excellent it was mostly mimed to a sound-track which included the hard-shoe sounds to give a greater coverage than the 20 dancers could achieve and was augmented by a few...

Saw Bryan Adams here, we had really seats about 10 rows back, but there aren't any really bad seats as this venue is about the perfect size for concerts. The acoustics are also very good we could hear every word Bryan sang. The atmosphere is very relaxed around the bar areas and there was an orderly queuing system which made... More

Visited BIC for Bryan Adams concert in Windsor Hall. Hall layout great, however the blue seats are too narrow for anyone who is overweight. Need a rethink

After our last trip when it was the first time ever going to a concert that I could see the whole stage (being vertically challenged ) we thought we had chosen the same seats! However we hadn't but could still see everything with clear view due to the staging of the seats!!! Best venue for me anywhere will probably never... More

Went to see Bryan Adams at the BIC and was impressed by the spacious waiting areas with bars and café, and the fact that it had adjoining parking (although we did not use it) and other parking within close walking distance. We sat in the Balcony and had good views and comfortable seats with reasonable leg room. The staff were... More

Not a bad experience once we got out of the BIC car park! So, the car park, you have a choice, either arrive late and risk not beiung able to park, or arrive early and fill the machine with coins. We arrived early enopught to have dinner first, and paid the price. To have dinner & take in the concert,... More

The Tregonwell Hall at BIC is a large space - giving plenty of room for the Interested Parties who attended the Preliminary Meeting before the Examination of the Navitus Bay off-shore wind-farm project. The Planning Inspectorate are to be commended in their choice of venue. So far as I could tell the facility worked well with no unfortunate events -... More

Liked the size of the theatre and foyer was very large and well presented. The first 13 rows of seats were temporary clipped together chairs on one level. If you are watching a performance which encourages standing up to dance i.e. Earth Wind and Fire, in our case, you may well have to stand and dance too or you won,t... More

I have been on several occasions. The Windsor Hall can hold more than 4,000 people and is a great venue for concerts. Whilst you can book online, you should call their box office, as their staff are really helpful in getting you the best seats available on the night and welcome the opportunity to explain the pros and cons attached...
