Been numerous times to see comedians here. Holds 2000 people in the main room but yet still has feel of an intimate gig. Are a few restricted views but can be avoided at booking stage

Though I had a last minute seat at the very back my view was quite good but I soon forgot where I was sitting as I laughed so much. I like the City Hall as it is more intimate than huge arenas.

This has a great location in the centre of town there plenty of places where you can go for a meal first, then even afterwards go for a few drinks as walking distance to both, there's no parking on site but some close by, take umbrella if weather is bad.

I have been here a few times & always find it clean tidy & staff very organised. It's a lovely building of an ideal size to see an act as you can see well from the back to the front, just be wary of seats on the far left or right of the stage as you will be looking from... More

It is a good place to see bands. Good acoustics and a good view. Seats are a little cramped and you get constantly asked to stand to allow the beer swillers to get another pint from the bar or nip to the toilet which seems to occur constantly at every performance.
