“panto time!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

The foyer was a nightmare- no space to meet people or buy tickets, mainly due to the lack of pushchair parking, but clean toilets and good show.

“Poor sound and management”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

Having been here maybe a dozen times over the years, I'd say the sound is poor for rock concerts in the Parr Hall - it's not designed for it. Only worth going for the fact that it's a gig in Warrington as opposed to having to go into Manchester. Worse though are the over-officious and petty bouncers and management staff. The management staff look like they'd really rather it was a community dance event taking place than a noisy rock concert - so whatever you do, don't stand up in the sparsely populated upstairs, even during the encore... enjoying yourself is strictly NOT allowed! Oh - there are some good things : parking is easy nearby and soft drinks are very reasonably priced which makes a nice change.

“Cracking Venue!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

We came here for the Miles Kane gig and weren't disappointed. We live in Cornwall and I hadn't heard of the Parr hall until the Stone Roses did their comeback gig here and ever since that I've wanted to come. It's a top little venue, the music sounded great and Miles Kane tore the roof off. Can only imagine how good the Roses gig would have been!

Intimate small venue - seating approx 1000. Doesn't really matter whether you are sat in stalls or circle - view of stage is fabulous. Experienced fabulous gig there - nice bar and friendly staff.

“Jason Manford”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Had a great night here, it was a bit warm in there. Facilities were good bar opened before the show and in the interval, ques were massive but everyone got served before they shut. The bar prices weren't too over priced.
