Visited here last night. It's very small and cosy. It could do with a refurb. The plastic chairs are uncomfortable. And the place could do with a lick of paint. The show its self... read more

Appearance from the outside was certainly deceiving. This establishment needs money sinking into it and fast. Upon entering it resembled what you would expect from a civic hall in 1932! Dated and tired is an understatement. The seating was abysmal, cramped in like sardines is the term that springs to mind. Uncomfortable, dirty and musty with no leg room and... More

The faithful Civic Hall has a pedigree of decent musical events, exhibitions and all types of entertainment. I've seen David Bowie here, and The Smiths, and yesterday Tom Stade. 2 decent venues in 1! It does it all!

Had tickets for the Ken Dodd show on December 13th, doors to open at 18.00, show to start 19.00 hours. When we arrived at 18.10 many people had been queuing for half an hour, the delay in the doors being opened was due to sound checks, sadly this information had to be dragged out of the door staff, a local...

This is a review on the venue itself, not the act. The acts, as expected, were extremely good. The venue, however, left a lot to be desired. We came to Wolverhampton having never been here before as a last-minute booking to see Dave Gorman (the only reason we managed to get tickets for this was because the original date was... More

Getting around the building and being served at the bar was easy. We chose to sit on the balcony at the front. However, there... More

My first visit here for a long time, this time to see Michael Schenker and Judas Priest. The venue is good enough. Nothing to shout about ; indeed you can find similar venues up and down the country. Staff work very hard here and yet remain friendly ( I have a soft spot for the Wolverhampton inhabitants ) . There... More

Will never go to the civic hall again, I'd rather spend an extra 2-3 hours in the car and go someplace else. The toilets were absolutely foul, smelly, dirty, no lights in the cubicles so couldn't see a thing and the window had string tied around it I thought it was going to smash open at any moment! Hand dryers... More

Absolutely fantastic show, she was incredibly funny but the venue was appalling. The disabled lift wasn't working, the seats were cheap/ worn out and really uncomfortable. The floor was so dirty from drinks being spilt on it, your shoes stuck to it and the toilets were dirty with some out of order, bulbs blown and hand dryers it working. Would... More

Have been here recently for a concert. We had balcony seats but didn't realise when we purchased the tickets that we couldn't stand up and dance! This was quite odd as I've never been to a venue that enforces something like that before. There were the odd few people standing up but were soon told to sit back down by... More

We'd been to the Civic Hall twice before and both times said "never again" but Sarah Millican was on so what can you do? Sarah apologised when she came on stage - apparently there'd been a "technical problem with the venue" which is why the audience had been queuing out in the rain and the show was late starting. I...
