When a venue advertises that you can buy tickets at it you expect this to be the case! Not here I'm afraid. To be told by the Bar Staff who had just checked with one of the alleged managers, that I should just go to...More

I hear this venue is closed now which is ashame as I had a great time here years back now when we came and saw OPM live (remember Heaven is a Halfpipe) Very small which makes a gig that much better

Very good gig venue. Literally 5 minutes from the station but can be difficult to.see as it's down a horrible staircase and under a bridge where its very dingy at night. Seen lots of bands here and always is a good night. Reasonable prices at...More
