Only two things wrong, the seats in the hall are awful, I suffer a bad back but manage it with good posturing, over 30 hours sat in these seats has ruined my (bank holiday) weekend. Secondly the speed of service and pricing in the cafe, too slow and too expensive.

The worst acoustics on the planet - Why they razed the Winter Gardens to the ground I'll never know! Jackson Browne (He who wrote Take It Easy) said it was worse than playing in his high school basketball court. The Pavillion is not much better. To top that, parking is expensive and it takes an eternity to get out. Poole's... More

We booked to see Derren Brown Herr late last year and spent a while looking for the "right" seats. We decided to get some seats that we thought weren't too far away from the centre of the stage, but when we got there they were way off centre! This may also be because the stage looked smaller, but I could... More

Lots of parking nearby. Easy to get to, either on foot or by road. Big open spaces for mingling with friends and talking. Good directions on how to find where you need to be. Some of the toilets a bit small with only three stools when the venue can entertain thousands, that's asking for trouble! Leg room too squished for... More

Went there at the start of Michael Balls 2015 tour, the seating for a concert venue is reasonably comfortable. Access is nice and easy. Well worth a visit for future concerts
