Went to see a stand-up comedy show grate little theatre tucked away. Wouldn't have otherwise found it, if it wasn't for the show. Got lots of other shows and events. Good outdoor waiting area with food and drinks.

Had a fantastic night last night at the Factory, watching the Sunnyboys. Hurray for live music! It was certainly a throwback from the 80s! The venue in standing only but it steps down so you can see from most places. The acoustics are great and...More
