Lacked help for disabled people and those who are less a led bodied could do with more lifts and ramps plenty to look at and place to sit and eat and drink.

Brilliant annual show though the building is in need of repair but it is still the ideal place to hold the annual show

The winter gardens held the pigeon weekend this year and if the fire alarm was to go off you wouldn't get out . It is too small for shows

Great standard of dancing - very long day though (8am - midnight!), which makes it quite hard to fit in meals as the nearby restaurants fill very quickly with people taking advantage of the same breaks in the day's programme.

Booked tickets for this party really looking forward to it. Seriously let down queing at the bar for ages, and the main dislike was at midnight they didnt do a thing about New year, no baloons, poppers , great let down. Well would not recommend this venue for new years eve again, but live and learn eh.

We went to the theatre bar at the winter gardens for New Years Eve & had a wonderful night. The Pineapple Jacks were very entertaining. Staff lovely. Free entry. Free glass of sparkling wine to toast the New year. Some members of the audience got up to sing with the duo. My husband included. We'll be back.
