Discriminatory & unethical payment system for parking.
Nov 2021
Discriminatory, unethical and privacy invading payment system for the car parks.
To pay for parking you need to possess a luxury item, namely a mobile phone, have an appropriate account with a mobile telecommunications provider to access a website where you are expected to provide your vehicle registration number to be entered into a database and then be setup with some online banking system to make a payment, thus having your privacy invaded by providing all these organisations with your whereabouts and activities. Neither are you warned that your vehicle registration number is being logged automatically.

I do not own a mobile phone and spent an hour making enquiries around the campus on how I could pay, but to no avail, I had to leave without paying or visiting the Arts Centre - I now fear the vehicle owner will be fined for non payment because no alternative payment system was provided.

I had cash in my wallet ready to make payment in the traditional manner but there was no means to do so.

acoustics at concert hall
Mar 2020
I visited the TCHAIKOVSKY piano concerto Mar 6th 2020.
The acoutics were terrible. I'm no expert Just my opinion
The violins as a group sounded like nasal wildcats. In general I dont like the sound of SOLO violin so I am idiosycratic.
The drums sounded like a canon and the woodwinds contained no beauty. for example the slow melody (flute?) backed by piano in mvt 2.
On top of that I had to suffer a horrible non musical modern piece that experts inflict on the unassuming public
Being personal please tell the conductor to wear trousers that dont stop 8 inches above the ankle !

Great venue
Feb 2020 • Couples
Came here to see Jimmy Carr, the layout is perfect so you can see the stage very clearly. Loads of parking available and only a short walk to venue. Members of staff were very helpful showing us to the doors, seats and bar area. Overall great venue to see an intimate show.

We visited to see midweek stand-up comedy. Warwick Arts Centre is an excellent venue. The new coffee shop is excellent too.

Diverse programme
Jan 2020
We visit this Arts Centre regularly. Some people get confused: despite it being on Warwick University campus, most of the audience are neither academics nor students. Instead the audience comes from Coventry and Warwickshire.

The venue is undergoing a significant refurbishment to update and expand facilities. During this period the number of events has been curtailed. But despite this there is something to suit most tastes.

Parking can be difficult, so do give yourself plenty of time

Inside Warwick arts centre
Dec 2019 • Friends
Came here with wife and friend to see Ronnie Spector and the Ronettes Tuesday 17th December parking is very easy so could’ve done with a bit more light walking to the venue from Car Park
Stewards were still it’s on hand to show you the way
small bar there drinks reasonably priced considering other venues that I have been to the show it’s self was not bad lasted about an hour and a quarter in total most finished by 9:15 pm
Disappointed with the attendance seemed about a third full yet when I looked on the website to Book tickets there was limited spaces for three people to sit together and a person I know said he could not get tickets as it was sold out
At about 20 to 8 I asked one of the stewards what time the show started and she said any minute now thinking that due to the fact the room is empty and it wasn’t starting for another hour
The show itself was not bad she did an excellent version of Amy Winehouse back to black which was the highlight of the show
All in all a good night except for attendance

Working through the refurb
Oct 2019 • Solo
I am a big fan of this art centre and come here a lot. Over the last couple of weeks I have been to see several shows and been to all of the venues. On each visit the Art Centre has been full with 3 or 4 shows going on at the same time but everything just seems to run smoothly during the rebuild. Hats off to the organisers and when the project is over I am sure it will look amazing.

Arts centre cafe
Jun 2019 • Couples
Decided to eat at the arts centre cafe before seeing Small Island. Checked before ordering that hot food would be in time for us to make the show and were assured burgers would be fine - it wasn’t busy when we ordered. With half an hour to go before the show, people who arrived after us and had ordered the same hot food (burgers) were served. Upon checking where our order was, were told it would be another 10 mins giving us little time to eat. We cancelled hot food. No apology from anyone, and Alexa definitely needs to learn how to listen to and speak to customers who have been let down. Simply reiterating ‘we cook food from fresh’ when it is clear that the kitchen messed up the orders is not helpful.
A free coffee was offered when I said we felt let down - daft as given the queues for coffee we would not have had time to drink it.
Not much point waxing lyrical about their burgers on the website if kitchen can’t get orders made in correct order. And front of house staff don’t appear concerned.
Avoid at all cost.
