Night out with friends. Great show. Tickets were booked online. Plenty of parking spaces. Their website could be improved by providing a synopsis for their events.

I ventured into this place on Saturday, after a mate gave me his spare Chas & Dave ticket. I was really impressed with the set up and thought the seats were comfy and spacious. I joined in with the sing songs, and was delighted that dave signed me programme during the interval. I wasn't overly impressed with the Bar, as... More

Very popular venue for comedians. Seen many shows here, from comedy - musical - panto. Easy to book your tickets. Website not as good as it used to be. Unable to click on a show and read the synopsis anymore.

William Aston Hall now having lots of high profile acts which are touring Britain and visiting Wrexham for the first time. Giving local people a chance to see very good acts which has not been possible before. Prices are also slightly lower than the bigger venues, making it more affordable. We have seen acts which we probably would not have... More

My wife and I went to hear a Motown tribute group. Whose performance was amazing. A good evening that was only spoilt by the lack of good interval facilities, the toilets for disabled etc... were fine. However, the refreshments were very poor. I don't put this down to a one off, as on our last visit before this we (months... More

The term Hall does not do the venue justice, it is so much more than you would expect. I have visited umpteen theatre's over the years and some don't even come close to WAH. A great performance space with comfortable seating (if a little academic), nice waiting area with bar area. Only downside was, as you would expect with an... More

William Aston Hall puts on lots of productions in the theatre from pantomimes, tribute acts to comedians. Based on Mold Road so convenient for car users or bus/train users.

Been here a couple of times to see live comedy. Big venue, allocated seating - the only downside of seating is if you're behind someone tall as you're all on the same level so you can feel you're regularly moving you're head left and right. But as most performers move around, it's not a huge problem. People complain about parking... More

I have been visiting here for many years, mainly for classical music concerts. It is a good venue, but always a problem getting parked if you are near to the event time. Getting out again is always a push and shove affair, both on foot and on the car. Again a bit of a squash getting refreshments before and in... More
