We have seen the show before but we never tire of it. At the BIC there is plenty of front of house space and easy access. We had seats in the upper tier and had a good view of the stage.

What a wonderful venue. So easy to access and so modern. There is a built in car park to the side of the theater so not far to walk.

Arrived with 20 mins to spare before Mike Gunn was due on stage hoping to get a drink at the bar but just seeing how many people deep the bar area was just gave up and went to sit down. A good tip would be to have some people serving bottles of chilled beer, wine and cider from portable cool... More

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
