Visited on a Wednesday night to see the legends Buddy Holly,Robbie Williams, David Bowie and Lady Ga Ga. All four were excellent in their appearence and vocal content.We have seen similar shows both abroad and at home and this was certainly one of the best. Enjoyed every minute and will definately come back. Well done Sands

Visited on Wednesday to see Lady Gaga, David Bowie, Robbie Williams and Buddy Holly. Entertainers were brilliant. Floor layout is a bit unfortunate as if you book a 2 seat table you continuously have waiters and waitresses walking past you, and this is in a supposed VIP area. All in all a very good nights entertainment.

hello and thanks for your review .unfortunately the layout is due to offering tables of two for people not wanting to share and with being in the tier area we provide table service and they have to use the walkway to serve people.i can only apologize and hope this didn't spoil you night More

What a fabulous venue with plush surroundings we did not expect. My friend and I who are both disabled were treated like royalty since the minute we went in to book our tickets for the show until we left after the show.

Went to watch glamantics last Sunday, was a good show, just wish I'd known more of the songs from the 70's. The venue itself is amazing, the staff are very friendly and helpful. They show you to your seats then u don't have to move again during the night, u get table service for the bar
