Went to see Lee Mack at the BIC, and it was amazing. The theatre was clean and modern, although as we were leaving I noticed there was quite a queue for wheel chair users to go down in the small lift. I cannot believe in a modern building this could be the only lift, maybe there were more that I... More

The venue is centrally located near to some excellent restaurants, in particular The Crab, which I also reviewed. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The BIC is a very modern building: plenty of toilets ladies! The only drawback we found was that there were very long queues for the bar at the interval with only two bar staff on.... More

Enjoyed a pleasant evenings entertainment at the BIC centre . There is a car park on side , but walked to venue as staying nearby. Ordered tickets online but then charged a fee on each ticket plus another fee. It appears ticket sales seem to be done through ATG. Why the charge if you want to collect ? The venue... More

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
