“Another Good Venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

The city hall is still the most nostalgic venue and the Arena by far the biggest but the Carling academy has a good atmosphere where ever you view from. Good service and always a well stocked bar.

“Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We didn't know what to expect with the venue as i had never been there before, but was over joyed with it. It was intimate and even we were on the balcony we could see cleraly what was happening on the stage. The sound was great in the concert and loud which is what I wanted for a rock concert.

Looking forward to go to many more concerts there.

“Love the place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

I have been to so many gigs here over the past 10-12 years. The venue is great, dont really need to try and get to the front to get a decent view. The Upstairs is better for more intimtae gigs, but all in all very good. One down side is the price of the beer - real rip off but nothing you can do about that. Going here in a few weeks for a gig in in the O2 2 and cant wait!

“could do with a refurb but all in all very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

this is a great size venue in the middle of town. easy to get to and near some good boozers for pre gig meet up points. Inside could do with a refurb but it would not stop me going. The bars could do with an extra member of staff or two...
