Great concert venue. Easy access to gate, security is nice, so all guests can enter there quite quick. Sound quality is really good, doesn't matter if you on balcony, front row or on the back. Wherever you standing there is a good view for a stage as well.

Lovely venue, really attractive and with great acoustics. We were sat on the very front row in the circle and had a great view although it is worth noting that you are not allowed to stand in the first 4 rows upstairs. Although the venue was sold out we didn't have to wait too long for drinks in the bar... More

we have been to many gigs here , its easy to get to and the bar area is large and a nice space while your waiting. inside is a really interesting and attractive place like a theatre so it has some real character. the other huge plus is that the floor is staggered so you can always see the band....

Went to see Faithless here and they were brilliant as you would expect and as good as they were when we saw them at the ally pally last year. The venue has retained a lot of the charm and character of its era which is nice. We were in the stalls or mosh pit as it should be known. On... More

We went here for the Carlos Vives concert Great atmosphere once we got in but the queue was ridiculously long I know the venue is sponsored by O2 but seeing people being jumped to the front of the queue because someone in their party had an O2 phone was quite annoying If you want to give them perks let them...

Really good place to enjoy a concert. I have experienced it last week and I think it was really nice. The place is huge and I was luckily at the middle front where I had a spectacular view from one of my favourite artist. I was queueing early because I wanted to stay in a good place to enjoy, the...

It was my 2nd concert at this venue, and as the 1st, it was so much fun! I can't quite comprehend why anyone would choose to wear high heels and sequels but hey whatever rocks your boat. If you want to dance, jump and lose your voice from all the singing, then you are in the right place. It is... More

The decor of this stage is quite nice and it feels like one is under the sky while actually there is a ceiling. The slope of the stage gives a good view for all spectators and it's not too far away even at the very back.
