Had a great view of band near front. Entry procedure quick and business like. Drinks at bar reasonably priced but not enough staff on to cope with audience. Overall, very good concert venue. Thanks!

Went to see Dave Gorman who was great. The theatre was easy to find. Be careful where you park the car if the show runs until 11pm. Seating was comfortable.

Has it's challenges like every other council venue in the country but is trying hard - at some point more money needs to be spent. The outside looks sameish and lacks inspiration

I have been to the Music Hall a number of times and every time it's fantastic, its a beautiful venue too. Was a little bit disappointed as we queued for a very long time to be at the very front and the fire alarm went off and we were all evacuated due to the not required smoke machine being on... More

They go out of their way to get everything 100%... More

A lovely building and great cafe. Popped into the cafe for lunch in lovely surroundings. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Very reasonable prices and pleasant staff. Good selection of shows throughout the year.

A lovely concert venue but the bar service at our visit this weekend was just plain embarrassing despite it being quiet....actually the service may explain why the bar was so quiet. The bar was manned by several very young and seemingly inexperienced girls who obviously need some supervision or training, as they were all very quiet and painfully slow. For... More
