The old lady needs some money spent on her but not long ago there was a risk the Council would close her so at least she survived. Roughly a 2000 seater venue so going to give you a more intimate gig than the Arena. Tonight, for my wife, it was Rick Astley. 3 rows from the front and right in... More

Went to rick astley concert which was enjoyable but city hall facilities are dirty and the staff appeared disinterested when alerted. Concert finished at 10.20 and ladies toilets were locked down, we were advised to go to mens! Really! I spent well over £100 for that experience what a disgrace, never again!

This must be the best music venue in the north east. Been coming here for 25+ years to see various bands. Good acoustics, decent bar downstairs (but gets busy) More bands should play here !!

Still going strong for some of the bands who cannot fill the likes of the arena still get confused though when you are in front row of balcony you have to stand anyway looking forward to THUNDER on Sunday .

I Have been here many times and found the facilities to be very good. The seating in my opinion is better for the spectator than the Theatre Royal and more economical in terms of ticket prices. This theatre is cosy but has a very good atmosphere.

I only visited Newcastle for this show. Living in Hull we really don't have much that's classy or flashy so my surprise when we arrive here and find that the city hall is in need of a update and clean. Hull city hall is excellent and makes the city centre look beautiful. So we were shocked to see this building... More

Went to see Bianca del Rio at City Hall tonight. The actual gig was great (she very funny lady!), but not a great experience at all because of engineer lights. We sat in seats Y14 &15, two rows behind the sound desks which took up about 8 seats (why so many sound desks/tech for a single person stand-up with no... More

Visited city hall when I watched reeves and mortimer. It's a lovely theatre but cold. It seems to be in disrepair and could do with a little tlc.
