Specifically designed as a city centre concert venue with sound baffling form the underground that runs directly underneath it. the accoustics are phenomenal. Beautiful venue, right in the city centre, with cafe and walking tours around the... More

This place is great for music and other genres of performance. I have been here for psychics, performances by the SNO and ballets. The acoustics and seating layout are great for viewing pleasure.

Went to see Heart in concert here in July 2016 it was a great concert in a fab venue! Pleasant auditorium although drinks were pricey! Also because drinks can be brought into the concert some people were constantly going and forint during the gig for toilets and more drinks... That was really the only complaint!

Visited for a gig last night. Venue spotless, staff incredibly friendly and efficient. Beat venue staff I've ever met. Acoustics amazing. All in all a cracking venue for live music.

As a family we visited here to watch our daughter collect her honours degree on 29th June. What a fantastic proud moment for us. That was until she nearly passed out with the heat after waiting two and a half hours in various qs to get photographs that had already been paid for. Management and staff, mainly management, should be... More

We're long term attendees at concerts here so we've been watching the building work for the extension. We went to the Scottish Irish concert with Eddi Reader, Nicola Sturgeon and the President of Ireland who all spoke and were all applauded though Eddi was the only one to sing! On stage with Eddi were her usual band but before her... More

I was at the Cyndi Lauper concert, and in general, I was impressed with the venue and the staff. I was annoyed at one incident. I had noticed, before the concert, that there was a sign on the bar, saying it would be closing at 9:15. When I went to get a last pint at 9:05, the bar staff were... More
