Went for the Happy Monday's concert. The band were very good but the evening was spoilt by the bar closing at 9.20pm!

“Olly Murs - fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We've never been to the theatre before but it was a fantastic evening. Not sure what it would be like if the weather was bad as it is "open air" but in the sunshine it was brilliant.
